NEW CANAAN — Delayed a week because of snowy weather, the 14th annual New Canaan Turkey Trot for the Homeless enjoyed a spirited run at Waveny Park on Sunday morning.

More than 400 people helped raise funds for the Norwalk-based Open Door Shelter, including over 200 from the group, which included dozens of elementary school students from Darien.

“I really like the cause,” said Brielle Connelly, 17, of New Canaan, who co-chaired the event. “I think the Open Door Shelter is a great way to help people.”

Co-chairman David Tamburri, 17, of New Canaan, said what began as an informal walk among a few families 15 years ago resulted in more than $25,000 raised for the cause last year.

“I think we’re definitely on par to make that this year,” he said.
