Pete Dalton, Jr. was a beloved son and brother and passed away in 1985. Pete attended Xavier High School in Middletown, CT and ran on the track and cross country teams. Running was special to Pete so we thought it was only fitting to continue our support of the school and help out with their new athletic complex. The track was dedicated on September 12, 2015 - thank you to Brother Brian and everyone who has supported the endeavor. The Foundation also maintains a scholarship in Pete's name and is gifted yearly.
