This is the major fundraiser for Youth & Family Services of Haddam-Killingworth, Inc. (HKYFS), which is a private, non-profit Youth Service Bureau committed to providing high-quality human health services to promote the development and well-being of the local community. For nearly 30 years, HKYFS has been in our community offering individual, couple, family and group counseling, prevention initiatives, after school, evening and weekend programs, community coalitions, and support groups for members of the community.

So far, HKYFS has acquired several sponsors for the event: New Image Auto, Nutmeg Pharmacy, River Valley Oil, Fireworks Hearth & Home, Hillcrest Agency, the Lee Company, and Dutch Oil Company, but they are always looking for more sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring the event, or to learn more, email

Youth and Family Services of Haddam-Killingworth is working harder than ever to service the towns of Haddam and Killingworth during these times. The 5K Pumpkin Run/Walk is a positive event at which the community can come together. Please help support HKYFS.
