9th Annual Stuff the Sleigh 5k - Thank you for your Support!

December 12, 2021

On Sunday December 12th the Cutchogue Fire Department hosted its Ninth Annual "Stuff The Sleigh 5k Race".

Now in it's ninth year, the race raised money for the Cutchogue Fire Department Scholarship fund and other charities supported by CFD. A portion of the proceeds will support donations to the American Parkinsons Diesase Assosciation and the Firefighters Cancer Support Network.

Over 250 participants turned out for this years race that was run under sunny skies and temperatures in the 50's.

The morning's festivities began with a Children's fun run as a group energetic children ran a shortened race to the firehouse where they were met by Santa Claus at the finish line. Santa applauded all the children and presented special awards to each participant.

At 10:00 am the group massed in front of the firehouse for the start of the 5k race, eagerly awaiting the start. Once Santa gave the word the race began with the runners following a scenic 5k course through New Suffolk. The race would end at the firehouse where a reception including awards, clam chowder and refreshments were served.

The race also served as a Toy drive, as all participants were asked to bring a new toy to "Stuff the Sleigh" for needy families during the Christmas Holiday. The sleigh was filled with several hundred gifts by days end.

A list of Times and the winners is listed below:
