13th Annual Whittingham Cancer Center Walk & Sally’s Run

On Saturday, April 30, 2016 nearly 2,000 individuals - community residents, businesses, civic groups, churches and schools - will gather at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk for the 13th Annual Whittingham Cancer Center Walk & Sally’s Run.

 

Introduced in 2004 by grateful patients, this community driven event has grown in size and spirit, raising over $2.75 million since its inception, all of which has remained in this community to support patient programs and services of the Whittingham Cancer Center. 

 

The event features a timed 5k run at 8:30 a.m., a 3k walk at 10:30 a.m., entertainment by DNR, Fairfield County’s (almost) all physicians rock band, health booths, and kid’s activities.  Run awards will be provided in eight different age categories.  Registration for this rain or shine benefit will begin at 7:30 a.m. for the run and 9:00 a.m. for the walk.

 

So walk, run, create a team, join a team, make a donation or honor a loved one by purchasing a tribute sign.  All donations made in support of the Whittingham Cancer Center Walk & Sally’s Run are tax-deductible.  You just may be helping your neighbor, your friend or someone you love.  Please visit www.nhwalkrun.org today.   The registration fee is $30 per adult/$15 per child under 19 years of age until April 29th, $40 per adult day of registration, and includes a T-shirt.  Parking is free and no pets are allowed.  Proceeds from the walk/run will assist the Whittingham Cancer Center in its efforts to continue to provide local residents with the best possible cancer care, close to home.
