Mission: Our mission is to make a difference locally in the fight against breast cancer through education and research. Our desire is to find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.
Results: To date, CT BHI has awarded over $1.6 million to fund important breast cancer research and education projects in Connecticut. Thus far, we have funded 20 researchers at various Connecticut hospitals. Six have reported on their progress at national meetings and one research project is patent pending. We strive each year to surpass this milestone with the help of our supporters, sponsors and fundraising events.
Programs: CT Race in the Park - Mother's Day Weekend every year
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!
I've heard nothing but wonderful things about Connecticut Breast Health Initiative's staff, volunteer base and fundraising event (race). I'm really looking forward to volunteering for them this year and supporting this excellent cause.
CT Breast Health Initiative is dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer while keeping an acute awareness of the local impact of the disease. The dollars raised here, stay here - which is so important to CT's health and welfare.
