Each 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 local families, as well as give away hundreds of new children’s books!

This year, the event was a huge success. Despite the threat of rain, the venue was packed to capacity to celebrate the event’s 40th anniversary. And, our volunteers gave away almost 1,000 children’s books, plus made many contacts for upcoming events and book donations!

Many thanks go to Jill Abbott, the Winterthur Race Director for organizing the event, our many dedicated volunteers including Vincenza Carrieri-Russo, Samantha Grandy, Matthew McNeill, Donald McNeill and Susan McNeill.
