Fall Fest 5K
This fall favorite run, previously known as the Bearcat 5K, is now the Saturday kick-off event at the Salisbury Fall Festival held annually over the Columbus Day weekend. The run along the scenic Rail Trail starts and ends at the famous Salisbury Ski Jumps. It provides an opportunity for community members and visitors to compete or take a jog through the beautiful Salisbury countryside. Cross the finish line, take a deep breath and then enjoy a day of delicious food and activities for adults and kids alike at the festival.
Charity Golf Tournament
For over 20 years, HYSB’s annual golf tournament has been the organization’s largest fundraiser. Held at Torrington Country Club, an otherwise private course, this day has become a late-summer community favorite. The tournament is made possible by community businesses and individuals who generously support the day through various levels of sponsorships. In additional to the 18-hole course, there are raffles, putting contests, a silent auction and various games and prizes throughout the day.
