Saturday, September 16, 2017, Cancer Wellness Connections hosted our tenth annual ovarian and gynecologic cancers benefit 5K race. It was great to have so many people out in support of Cancer Wellness Connections and the women and families who have been affected by ovarian and gynecologic cancers. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped ensure the details were covered and that the race went off without a hitch.
There is a new opportunity to join a like-minded local running group in order to prepare to run in Cancer Wellness Connection’s annual 5K fundraiser.
FusionFest ’15 is a brand new fundraiser for Cancer Wellness Connections, and a collaborative effort between Rochester Institute of Technology and CWC. On Friday, March 20 you can have fun and support a great cause by playing video games! At the hub of FusionFest ’15 is a LAN (Local Area Network) party. RIT students are renowned for these events where participants gather with their gaming consoles for a tournament of live (and lively) video game play. This LAN Party has a fundraising twist and you can join in, too. Go to our home page and follow the link to set up your own fundraising page and have your own game-a-thon on Friday, March 20 in the comfort of your own home. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you as you play video games by the hour. Form a team and compete against others, all for a good cause.
When two-thirds of the founders of Cancer Wellness Connections talk about starting the organization eight years ago, they tell their shared story with passion and pride, finish each other’s sentences, and are confident in how the organization has helped ease the burden of cancer and treatment for tens of thousands of people and their families.
This year's Howard Berman Award went to Cancer Wellness Connections and we couldn't be more happy! We'd like to thank everyone that made this possible. Without our dedicated volunteers, food donors, race sponsors, staff at our location
