One day, Babette had breakfast. That breakfast was oatmeal. Kirk decided to turn that into a t-shirt.

Our third event of the 2017-2018 school year:

babette ran a 5k!

Known for her raspy voice, her frequent mentions of her husband Morey, and a penchant for making inappropriate comments, Babette Dell was Lorelai and Rory’s quirky and awesome neighbor. Celebrating Babette’s love of her garden gnomes, we’ve created a medal with Pierpont the Garden Gnome carrying his pipe and wearing a t-shirt. Everyone who signs up for this event will get this amazing 4″ 3-dimensional gnome with a sublimated ribbon.

Babette might have been a nosy neighbor, but she always looked out for other women. Chilton Running Club was honored to announce that our charity partner for this event is WriteGirl! Within a community of women writers, WriteGirl promotes creativity and self-expression to empower girls. Through one-on-one mentoring and monthly creative writing workshops, girls are given techniques, insights and hot topics for great writing in all genres from professional women writers. Every year, they produce dozens of workshops, panel discussions and special events to help girls get creative, get through high school and get to college! In fact, since 2001, 100% of their graduating seniors have entered college, many on full or partial scholarships!

We are pleased to announce babette ran a 5k! raised $6,266.62 to support WriteGirl during the Class of 2018 season.
