David Bohn of Redding, CT, has served as president of Preferred Utilities Manufacturing Corporation for over two decades. Outside of his professional activities, David Bohn supports several local Redding, CT-area organizations, including New Pond Farm, an environmental education center that was founded in the city more than 30 years ago.

In its efforts to raise money to support its various youth and adult education programs, New Pond Farm oversees several annual benefit events each year. Early registration recently opened for the group’s Fifth Annual Redding Road Race, which will take place Sunday May 1, 2016.

Dubbed “A Run for the Cows” the event will include a half marathon, a seven-mile race, and the Mighty Cow Challenge, a half marathon combined with a three-mile warm-up. Children also can take part in the Piglet Prance Fun Run.

Registration fees vary depending on the event and range from $15 for the Piglet Prance to $60 for the Mighty Cow Challenge. All proceeds from the 2016 race will benefit New Pond Farm and its natural science, agriculture, and arts-based programs. For more information, visit
