Success Won’t Wait gives away 500 children’s books at the Winterthur Point-to-Point “Fun Hunt”

2014 PTP kidsEach year, the volunteers at Success Won’t Wait look forward to the Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase “Fun Hunt.” This is our opportunity to share information about Success Won’t Wait and its mission with thousands of families, as well as give away hundreds of children’s books!

This year, the event was a huge success. Success Won’t Wait volunteers gave away over 500 children’s books and made many contacts for upcoming events and book donations.

2014 PTP SusanThe Kids’ Fun Hunt was instituted seven years ago by Race Director Jill Abbott, as longtime event attendees began bringing their children to the event. The Fun Hunt supplies kids with a “Fun 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 – like a free book!

Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware.
