M.E.L.T-A-Thon Against Cancer

On May 20, 2017, the CT Cancer Foundation held our 3rd Annual m.e.l.t.-a-thon Against Cancer at Center Memorial Park in Manchester.  Sponsored by Joe Carabase and the m.e.l.t. gyms, the m.e.l.t.-a-thon was extremely successful, raising more than $21,000! Our Ambassador this year was seventeen year-old Chris from East Hartford, who is battling leukemia.  Chris is an amazing person who inspired everyone with his story and his words of gratitude. He even did the workout!

We would especially like to thank Joe and Shannon and the whole team at m.e.l.t, our dedicated Steering Committee, and our amazing top fundraisers for their commitment to this cause!
