EKMW hosts 5K run, one-mile walk May 4

WESTPORT — The EKMW track and field team will be hosting a 5K run and one-mile walk at 9 a.m. May 4.

The event honors the memory of Dan McCormick, a longtime guidance counselor at Westport. McCormick was slated to be an assistant coach for EKMW this spring, but suffered a massive stroke Dec. 18, the first day of indoor season.

All proceeds from the event will go to support the track and field team for equipment and uniforms. The meet will be hosted by Camp Dudley on the Dudley Road in Westport.

Runners can visit EKMWtrack.org to enter online.
