Bulkeley Track and Field team

On April 22, 2024, a beautiful spring day, we were able to meet up with the Bulkeley High School Track and Field team and their coaches at their practice at Weaver High School. They were sporting their new warm-up gear and uniforms that they had recently received from the Hartford Marathon Foundation's Susie Baris, M.D. Youth Running Program. It was easy to spot them from afar in their smart, maroon get-ups.

Bulkeley Track and Field teamThis co-ed team expressed their deep gratitude for the new gear, which they say is extremely comfortable. Bulkeley Athletics Director Diane Callis expressed her gratitude on behalf of the school, and shared that donations like this and others, like track shoes from Fleet Feet, help make it possible for the Bulldogs to shine on the field and on the score board.
