Abolish Breast Cancer 5K Race/walk (ABC 5K) Abolish Breast Cancer 5K Race/Walk (ABC 5K)
All proceeds go to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for Breast Cancer Research
This event is officially endorsed by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Join us for the 2013 "ABC" 5K Run/Walk
The ABC 5K is a powerful, tangible way you can take a stand against breast cancer.

Laurie ChampanyAccording to the American Cancer Society, approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her lifetime.

Unfortunately, that means it's very likely that each of us knows someone who has or will have breast cancer. For us, our "someone" was Laurie -- our daughter-in-law.

The ABC 5K came into being in 2008 when, after five years in remission, Laurie’s cancer returned.

We cried, we hoped, we prayed and we decided to do something tangible to help fund the research that might save her and others like her.

We lost Laurie on March 19, 2010 and, while we miss her terribly, we are following her lead -- staying strong and fighting to make an impact! (
She always fought through her chemo and maintained her most important role as wife and mother. Laurie continued to serve on the Pomfret Board of Education, be a scout leader, and even earned a black belt in karate. )

Run or Walk -- Make a Real Difference

The proceeds from the ABC 5K go to the breast cancer research department at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. We chose to support Dana-Farber as we were very impressed with their commitment to research. Our children don’t know what polio is, our goal is to have our great grandkids not know what cancer is.

Last year we raised almost $8,000.00. This year, with your support, we would like to match or exceed this.

Research in one field of cancer also leads to decoding other forms of cancer.
