THE STORY:

This event and any event dealing with breast cancer is near and dear to my heart and my life. I want to do this for the beautiful survivor I am lucky enough to know and for all the other suvivors and fighters than have faced this disease past and present.

Calling all adrenaline junkies! Do you have what it takes to rappel 14-stories down the side of State House Square in Harford to support the local fight against breast cancer? Komen Connecticut challenges you!

 

Rappel for the Cure, a partnership with Over the Edge, is Komen Connecticut’s newest FUNdraising event that is geared toward the fearless or those looking to overcome their fears. Expert technicians provide on site training prior to the rappel. 

 

Did you know that Connecticut has the HIGHEST incidence of breast cancer in the U.S. and more than 3,000 women will be diagnosed here each year with breast cancer? It's a startling statistic. Komen Connecticut needs YOU as a part of our crusade to end breast cancer forever. Your fundraising efforts will help save the lives of Connecticut women.

 

Keeping it Local.  Seventy-five percent of the funds we raise remain in Connecticut, and are invested in local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs across the state. The remaining 25% is invested in research to find the causes and cures for breast cancer. None of these funds support Komen National.
