Geoff and Dana Beringer began the Myles M. Beringer Foundation in January 1999 after the sudden death of their toddler son from a heart arrhythmia. The Foundation is supported by the 19th Annual Miles for Myles Family Fun Run/Walk that takes place each year on the 3rd Saturday in May near the birthdate of their son.
The run will start at the Rowayton Community Center this year on Saturday, May 20th and begins at 8 a.m. when the registration and pre-registration tables open. Welcome announcements begin at 8:30 a.m. followed by the official starting gun at 9 a.m.
The popular family event is open to the public. Register online at www.milesformyles.org where you can also read about the history of the foundation and grants and proceeds generously awarded in previous years. This year partial proceeds will be awarded to two local organizations: STAR Inc. in Norwalk and KEYS Music Program in Bridgeport.
