For some reason, I thought about how we used to play four square at Burr Farms School back when I was there (from 1957 when it opened until 1960). Was this game unique to  Westport? Do they still play it?

4TH ANNUAL HEALTHY FAMILIES 5K RUN AND WALK

This all-ages, family-friendly event will take place on Earth Day and will combine running or walking for a cause with the opportunity to discover the amazing animals and habitats throughout Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport. As in years past, runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to participate. The day will begin with the ever-popular Kids' Fun Run, a free, non-competitive, quarter-mile race open to children in grade 6 and younger. Following the kids' race, adults can complete a computer-timed, winding 5K run or walk through the zoo. For those who wish to tackle a shorter course, debuting this year is the untimed, non-competitive, and open-to-all-abilities 1.5K Wellness Walk. Registration for the 4th Annual Healthy Families 5K Run and Walk will close at 500 participants, so early sign-up is highly encouraged. 


Those registered by April 18 are $25 for ages 19 and up and $18 for ages 13 to 18; participants ages 12 and under are only $12. Advance registration will officially close at 8 p.m. on April 18.
