New Balance is introducing on Wednesday the new 980 running shoe, which features its latest Fresh Foam technology. And New Balance New Canaan, which is selling it exclusively in the area, is giving away a pair to an FCIAC female track athlete in the Fresh Foam Sprint.
We have 10 contestants (we contacted every league coach to select a member of their team). The contest is simple: This is a 24-hour vote, from 7 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Monday. The winner will receive a pair of the new shoes, to be presented during New Canaan New Balance’s Fresh Foam party Thursday night at the store from 6-9 p.m.
Here are the selected contestants: Cate Allen, Fairfield Warde; Anna Black, Greenwich; Hannah DeBalsi, Staples; Sarah Healy, Wilton; Laura Hergenrother, Ridgefield; Claire Howlett, Westhill; Theresa Rose, Harding; Maddie Schneider, Darien; Maureen Schott, New Canaan; Claire Turner, Norwalk.
So get your votes in during the sprint and check back Monday night to see the Fresh Foam winner.
