CT Breast Health Initiative is a local charity that raises money that stays local. Even more importantly it raises the spirits of those affected by this disease. Walking in their annual walk was my goal when I was diagnosed 2 years ago. I proudly walked last year holding hands crossing the finish line with another survivor..

The CT Breast Health Initiative holds a wonderful event each Mother's Day Weekend in Walnut Hill Park. It is so beautiful and inspirational to see so many people gathered together to support the same cause. It is also fantastic to be able to support a CT organization that keeps all of its money raised here in CT. They are doing great things and hopefully some day, there will be a cure for breast cancer because of them!

The CT Breast Health Initiative is extremely dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer by working tirelessly to raise money to contribute to research toward finding a cure for this horrible disease. The Organization is run almost entirely by volunteers, so almost all the money raised goes to support its mission.

I've had several roles as a volunteer over the past few years for the CT Race in the Park. I've enjoyed working with all of the other volunteers to make this event a great success each year!
