On March 8, 2018 my mother Donna Orlando lost her battle with breast cancer. I'm running the Eversource Hartford Half Marathon on October 12, 2019 with Team Komen New England in her memory to help fight breast cancer so that someday no wives, mothers, or daughters will be taken from us all too soon.
The mission of Susan G. Komen New England is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. We are proud to be making an IMPACT in the fight against breast cancer right here in New England and have contributed more than $27 million in local breast health education, screening, and treatment since our inception. We are proud to be an official charity of the Eversource Hartford Marathon! Thank you for your support.
