Successful Spring Fundraising Events

This year’s 15th annual CT Breast Health Initiative’s Race in the Park was held May 12 in New Britain with over a thousand participants.  Team UConn Health Husky Heroes was ranked #4 – having raised $4196 by a record 47 team members and numerous generous donors.

There was also a large turnout from the Husky Heroes team at Relay For Life Farmington Valley this past weekend. The team raised $3,965 and Dr. Upendre Hegde, our chief medical oncologist, spoke about the importance of prevention and detection during opening ceremonies.

Both events were sponsored by our Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center and a big thank you to all of those who donated and volunteered their time to make them a great success. View the photo gallery.
