I recently got involved with the CT Breast Health Initiative because I wanted to work with a breast cancer nonprofit with local roots, where all the money raised woudl stay local. I got in touch with CTBHI and went in for a hour one meeting that turned into 5! I immediately wanted to get involved with the organization and the staff, because it was so clear to me that this group was working to make a real difference in the fight against breast cancer. Every year they hold the Race in the Park, where thousands of people come together to raise funds and awareness for the breast cancer cause. CTBHI's mission is to raise money for research and education, so all of the money raised is granted out to Connecticut researchers who are doing cutting edge research to find the cures for breast cancer. Money is also granted to local hospitals to provide education for women and men who are diagnosed with breast cancer. This is a fantastic organization, and I would highly recommend getting involved if you live in Connecticut!
