So, here is our plan... 2 chances to join us as we walk - take your pick!

Thursday, Oct. 1, 12pm EST - Round 1 of Runyon 5k. Plans have changed slightly, so Round 1 is Complete Your Own Adventure! Please walk / run on your own, wherever works for you. Sarah has an appointment but will be with us in spirit!! CT friends can join me to do laps around the District, if you'd like!! Lots of friends and families not in the Fairfield area, such as Ireland, will be joining us at the same time, remotely!

Sunday, Oct. 4, 12pm EST - Round 2 of Runyon 5k. For anyone who can't make the Thursday walk, we will do it again Sunday. This will also be a mix of in person and remote, near and far.

So, please join us in raising money for cancer research and celebrating our great friend!

As our dear friend, Sarah, finishes the radiation phase of her cancer battle, we want to show her some love and support by raising money for cancer research. In tribute of Sarah's strength, perserverance and indomitable will, let's do what we can to contribute to those efforts that will hopefully ease and improve the battle which cancer patients face.

We have taken a page from Sarah's brother's Sister Strong cancer research fundraising efforts in Ireland, and started up a Connecticut chapter. Please join our team - all are welcome - or support by donating!

100% of the money we raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer. During these challenging and uncertain times, your support is more critical than ever to helping the Foundation achieve its goals in the fight against cancer.   

Please make a donation that supports our run/walk. You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received!

Thank you for your support.
