“the little non-profit that could”
This is Year #12 for “the little non-profit that could”. Yes, eleven years and over $3.7M later, we are celebrating our tenth year as a non-profit!
Our marathons will consist of a full marathon (26.2 miles), a half marathon (13.1 miles) and a quarter marathon (6.55 miles). We also offer options for youth (see below).
The Walk will be held Saturday, October 7, 2017. The full marathon begins at 7:00 a.m. and starts at Saybrook Point, Old Saybrook, the half marathon begins at 10:00 a.m. and starts at 8 Capitol Drive in East Lyme, and the quarter marathon begins at 1:00 p.m. and starts at Niantic Baptist Church in downtown Niantic. All walks end at Camp Harkness in Waterford, CT.
Since our first walk in 2006, the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation strives to improve the Walk by listening to participants and evaluating the success of the event. Every penny raised by Walk participants is directed to breast cancer research. Yes after eleven years we are still committed to 100% of fundraising dollars going to breast cancer research!
