I have chosen to run the Susan G. Komen 5K race in Westport on May 9, 2015 in loving memory of my Mother-In-Law, Susan Finelli. She was a wonderful woman who we miss dearly. The Team name is "The Heavenly Hooters." We would love to raise money to help find a cure as well as provide services to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. All contributions are welcome and very much appreciated!!! Below is additional information on this very important cause. Save the TaTas!!!
Race for the Cure Fairfield County celebrates its third anniversary in 2015. Through funds raised by our Race participants, Komen Connecticut has contributed to funding more than $23 million in breast cancer research, local education, screening and treatment. Every dollar raised by Race for the Cure makes a lasting impact in the fight against breast cancer.
Did you know that Connecticut has the HIGHEST incidence of breast cancer in the U.S. with over 3,000 Connecticut women diagnosed annually? 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.
More treatment. More research. More survivors. A cure.
