The Race Beneficiary

Primary Beneficiary


Saint Vincent DePaul Society is a non-profit organization that plays a vital role in our community by providing shelter, food, counseling and referral services with dignity for people in need.  They operate a 25 bed homeless shelter, a 10 family Women with Children Transitional Center and a 13 unit transitional living center for single men.


Last years 15th Annual Shamrock Run & Walk was a huge success which was evidenced by the committee presenting a check for $14,000 to the shelter and hosting over 2100 athletes, spectators and volunteers.  Not only was it a great fundraising event for the shelter it helped raise awareness within the community of the good work being done for those less fortunate.  Since the race inception in 2003 the event has raised over $160K for the shelter.

Other Gifts

We are pleased to offer again this year a $1000 grant to The Cove...A Center for Grieving Children.  The Cove provides family and school-based programs utilizing the peer support group concept for helping children, teens and families work with their unresolved grief due to the death of someone significant in their lives and other traumatic losses. The Cove also provides professional development and training for adults working with children and teens.

Smaller contributions will be made to charitable organizations through out the greater Bristol area from proceeds raised from this event

An Irish Blessing

May you be poor in misfortune,
rich in blessings,
slow to make enemies,
quick to make friends,
but rich or poor,
quick or slow,
may you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.
