The Weston Forum partners with Komen for the Cure

A message from our publishers:

The Connecticut affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, in partnership with The Weston Forum, will bring the first annual Race for the Cure to Fairfield County in 2013.

The race, at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, will be on Saturday, May 11 — Mother’s Day weekend.

The event raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research and local breast cancer programs.

Connecticut has the second highest incidence of breast cancer in the nation, and several Fairfield County towns are among those with the highest rates of breast cancer incidence, mortality and late stage diagnosis.

Statewide, more than 3,000 Connecticut women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.

For each of the past three years, Komen Connecticut has funded more than $1 million in community grants to local organizations, providing lifesaving services for women in need across our state.

These grants currently support breast cancer programs in Fairfield County, including Norwalk Hospital, Bridgeport Hospital, Stamford Hospital, St. Vincent’s Medical Center, and CancerCare.

Seventy-five percent of Komen Connecticut’s net revenue supports local breast health programs across Connecticut, and the remaining 25% is invested in research to find the causes and cures for the disease. None of the money raised in Connecticut goes to support Komen National administration.

Although the organization invests in Connecticut breast cancer programs, much of its fund raising has historically taken place in the Hartford area.

“The Westport Race for the Cure is an exciting next step for our organization,” said Anne Morris, executive director of Komen Connecticut. “We are proud of the statewide impact of our community grants, and are thrilled to have a greater presence in Fairfield County. We need the support of all our local communities to help us continue investing in cutting-edge research and local breast cancer programs for Connecticut women and their families,” she said.

“The Race for the Cure presents us with an opportunity to celebrate survivorship, honor those who have lost their battles, and impact local residents by raising funds to support education, screening and treatment programs right here in our state,” Ms. Morris said. “This event is the perfect platform to empower Fairfield County residents to join the local fight against breast cancer.”

Radiologist David Gruen of Weston is a Komen Connecticut board member.

Events at the Westport race include a 5K race, 5K and 1.5K walks, a kids short run and kids K, and a survivor breakfast. Registration will open in January.

Komen Connecticut is currently offering sponsorship opportunities to local businesses and corporations, and is also seeking volunteers and committee members.
