Circle of Care 5K -- See you in 2017!
On Saturday October 1, 2016, hundreds of people joined children with cancer and their families from around the state to run our 2nd Annual Circle of Care 5k: Care to Run. This is a community-wide event, with runners from all over Connecticut joining those from Idaho, NY and Mass running to show children with cancer how much they care. Corporations, families and professional runners created teams or ran as individuals. Our student committee members are organizing teams in each grade at Wilton High School to compete with student teams from other schools. All funds go to Circle of Care’s programs that directly impact children with cancer in CT.

The miles were made more meaningful by those who created a fundraising page after registering. Whether the goal is $100 or $1,000, the extra funds raised made a difference in one or more children’s lives. Over 500 kids are in treatment at any given time in CT and the need for our programs and services continues to increase.
