STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford Mayor David Martin is one of three people who has been named an honorary chairman of Sunday's Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon.
Chief of Stamford Police Jonathon Fontneau, and Superintendent of Stamford Public Schools Winifred Hamilton will join Martin as honorary chairmen.
“We are honored to have these three outstanding leaders in our community serve as honorary chairs for the Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon race weekend,” said Shari Shapiro, executive director of Greenwich-based Kids in Crisis. “Their participation communicates the importance of the services Kids in Crisis provides and that this race is a signature event for the state of Connecticut as well as the City of Stamford.”
The Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon and Navigators Stamford KIC IT Kids Triathlon have grown into an outstanding athletic weekend, attracting competitors from across the country, while maintaining a special focus on offering a fun family experience.
