Bigelow Tea Community Engagement Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, Fairfield CT

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, Fairfield CT

By Elizabeth April-Fritz

October 27, 2013 was a beautiful crisp autumn day. A group of Bigelow Fairfield employees once again walked to support Making Strides Against Breast Cancer at scenic Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, Ct. In addition to Bigelow Tea's being a Pink Ribbon sponsor our team raised just shy of $1020.00!

My personal goal for the last 10 years has been to be a Pacesetter (one who raises $2500.00 per event). I am proud to say that this year with the combination of the Bigelow employee donations along with support of my family and friends, a total of $3635.00 was raised!!!

The strides that have been made since my original diagnosis in 1998 are significant and as a three time breast cancer survivor I can attest to just how critical the donations and research are.  I am living proof of that, because of the funds that are raised and research done, an individual can "live with" rather than "die from" a cancer diagnosis.

I am grateful to my fellow co-workers for their continued support and look forward to many more years of Making Strides as a team.
