The annual Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase was held last weekend on the stunning grounds of the Winterthur Museum and Gardens in Greenville, Delaware. Each May, this “awareness event” is one of the highlights of the event calendar for Success Won’t Wait volunteers.

In addition to thrilling steeplechase races, an amazing tailgate competition, a breathtaking collection of antique Rolls Royce automobiles, and loads of must-have offerings from exclusive vendors, the day also features the Success Won’t Wait Kids’ Fun Hunt!

The Kids’ Fun Hunt was instituted six years ago by Race Director Jill Abbott, as longtime attendees began bringing their children to the event. The Fun Hunt offers a “Kids’ Hunt Map” of the venue and encourages them to visit each vendor for an activity (like a free mani-pedi, painting horse shoes, or even playing dress up with a pony!) or a lovely prize.
