    The Vin Baker Foundation “Addiction Ends Here” 5k is a fundraiser presented by The Vin Baker Foundation with the proceeds supporting The Vin Baker Foundation. The Vin Baker Foundation is a nonprofit organization compassionately dedicated to improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities affected by alcohol and drug addiction and dependency.

    ***Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to shift to a virtual race. While we are saddened that we will not be able to meet together in Old Saybrook as we have in years past, we are excited and motivated to make this year’s race the best yet, and we are “all in” on spreading the word and reach of this event to people all over the nation. We will be adding additional distance options to the list of events, so everyone from any skill level can join in. Please join us in our virtual races starting July 1, and getting the word out to family and friends outside of Connecticut, which will help us deliver our message of ending addiction across the USA!

    *T-shirts will be allocated to the first 500 participants who register*

    GET INVOLVED & MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

    ImageA NATIONWIDE VIRTUAL RACE:

    Since we are unable to meet up in person this year, we would love to spread the reach of our Foundation across the country. Our goal is to have virtual runners representing all 50 states, so if you know someone that has been or is touched by the disease of addiction, please get them involved and make our goal of a nationwide virtual race a reality!
