Community Support

Donn Cabral, the Olympic steeplechaser and Princeton graduate, grew up in Glastonbury, Conn. Like all Nutmeggers, he was shaken by the tragedy at Sandy Hook and felt compelled to do what he could to support Newtown.

On Friday, he held a fundraiser at Monaco Ford in Glastonbury, signing autographs and raising money for the Newtown Memorial Fund.

In all, his fundraiser raised more than $800, but also drew interest from other professional runners who wanted to find ways to help the cause as well. Cabral also wanted to acknowledge the folks of his hometown and the surrounding communities which “showed some really great generosity.”
