On Sunday May 7, 2017, Trinity-Pawling School hosts the second annual MayDay – an event designed to raise awareness and money for two outstanding charities. Ryan’s Foundation is a non-profit organization designed to help kids in the Hudson Valley that have been diagnosed with cancer. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation funds research that transforms the lives of people with Type 1 diabetes.

The event is extraordinarily inclusive, as all people from the greater Pawling area are invited to attend and enjoy a festive day on the Trinity-Pawling campus. Pawling will be buzzing on MayDay, as a wide variety of activities will be offered. The main event is a 2.2 mile “Extreme Cross Country” race. The race will wind throughout campus and will include two mud pits, water, hills and obstacles. Participants looking for a less physically demanding event can participate in a cross- country style walk. Children may join a half-mile race on the track.

Other activities include an inflatable jousting ring, a dunk tank, a climbing wall, and much more! New this year is a plant and flower sale, a student art sale, a large thrift sale, and a cake auction.

Lunch will be included with registration, and there will also be food trucks on site for food to purchase. Registration will take place on the Trinity-Pawling campus on the day of the event, May 7th. A full schedule and fee list will be released and posted on the school website in April.

MayDay is a spectacular opportunity to get involved with the greater community.
