Fighting Daisies Running Group
Everyone who attended Miss Porter's between 2003 and 2007 knew, respected and admired Hayley Petit. Those who have come to know Hayley's personality through others have been moved by the story of a young woman who gave of herself constantly. She was a benevolent and kind person, who dedicated her life to the betterment of the world around her. She had a boundless thirst for knowledge, as was evident in her dream of becoming a doctor. However, she was also a ferocious competitor who pushed her teammates to new athletic achievements.
We hope that in running this race and many here after, we are adding to the legacy that was Hayley's life. We may not be as fast, strong, or as fit as we were when we wore the jerseys of the Green Machine, but the communal bond that holds us together is as strong as it was when we were duking it out in the trails, basketball courts, rivers and weight rooms.
Hayley inspired so many young women during her lifetime, and it is through her everlasting spirit of selflessness and love that we come together to form “The Fighting Daisies” running group as part of the Petit Family Foundation team.
"Why 'The Fighting Daisies?'"
"The Fighting Daisy" is the unofficial mascot of Miss Porter's School. It also symbolizes the beautiful, fighting spirit of women, young and old, who strive to achieve their ultimate best in all aspects of life. As members of The Fighting Daisies running group, we pledge to achieve a greater purpose by running our best and spreading the mission of The Petit Family Foundation, one step at a time.
