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
