King of the Hill

United Way of Western CT helps ALICE prosper
King of the Hill 2022
Welcome to the United Way of Western Connecticut's King of the Hill 5K!

After two years of virtual-only racing, we are thrilled to bring the event back to the Berkshire Corporate Park on Thursday, September 8, 2022. In addition to the in-person event, we will continue to offer virtual, non-competitive participation. 

A scenic and challenging certified 5K, the course weaves through the campus of Berkshire Corporate Park. Teams, walkers and runners are welcome. Parking and registration will be located at 8 Berkshire Blvd. Bethel, CT. 

Proceeds support United Way of Western Connecticut's work to make a difference in the lives of households that live paycheck-to-paycheck and struggle to make ends meet, a group that we call ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). These households earn more than the Federal Poverty Level, but less than the basic cost of living for our area. Combined, the number of ALICE and poverty-level households in our region is nearly 52,000. That’s 38% of our local population in Western Connecticut. 

We are committed to ensuring that every child enters school ready to learn, every family is financially stable and every community we serve is healthy and strong. We are the recognized leader in identifying issues and pathways to solutions. With your support, we will continue to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in Greater Danbury, Greater New Milford and Stamford.
