Diane Stroman Named Honorary Starter for 2018 Race

Diane Stroman has been named honorary starter for the 2018 race. Shaye Roscoe, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley, says, “We are thrilled that Diane has been selected as our honorary starter. Diane is a dedicated and active member of our community whose compassion and advocacy has positively impacted countless lives throughout the years.”


Diane has served our community for more than 35 years and retired this year from her position as Vice President of TEAM Inc. She is deeply passionate and very knowledgeable about the community’s needs. Diane lives in Ansonia where she grew up and has two children and two grandsons.

“When I look over the list of past honorary starters, I am humbled to have been asked,” Diane says. “It is a great honor to be selected. This race is a testimony of how the Valley and surrounding towns can come together in support of one another. I look forward to seeing the runners, friends, and families at the starting line.”

Race registration will open in late summer. If you’d like to be notified of the registration opening and any other information related to the race, sign up for our newsletter by filling out the mailing list form on this page.
