Greg Hammond, CFP®, CPA enjoyed a surprise after he ran the Hartford Half Marathon

Greg-Hammond-David-Polk-AwardGreg Hammond, CFP®, CPA enjoyed a surprise after he ran the Hartford Half Marathon  with the CT Children’s Medical Center team on Saturday, October 13.

Last year David Polk, a long-time board member of the Hartford Marathon Foundation established an award for the individual who raises the most money for charity as part of a team for the Hartford Marathon/Half marathon/5k.  To Greg Hammond’s surprise, he found out Friday night that he’d won the David Polk Award for the 2018 race.  By winning the award, the David Polk Award Fund will make an additional $500 donation to CCMC and Greg was presented with the award after he completed the race.  Greg said, “This will probably be the only time I’ll be able to stand on the winner’s podium by the finish line, but there is always next year… !” A big thank you to everyone for your support of such a great cause. Team Connecticut Children’s is proud to be the largest, official charity team that participates in the Eversource Hartford Marathon.
