Ken Novotny, a dedicated member of the Concord Academy board of trustees, passed away tragically in 2014. Ken was passionate about serving children with special learning needs, and served as treasurer of the board for four years.

Ken lived his life to the fullest and his passionate spirit will forever live in the hearts of his Concord family and friends. Each year we dedicate the Chilly Chili 5K Run in his memory and our students raise funds to support the school.

Our students’ ambitious fundraising goal this year is $15,000! You can help them reach this goal through a gift in any amount.
