We have all known family members and friends who have had cancer, who have both conquered it and who have bravely fought the disease and succumbed. CTChallenge.org is a support organization, and the “CT Challenge bike ride is the primary funding vehicle for the nonprofit organization which is dedicated to helping the 14.5 million cancer survivors in Connecticut and throughout the U.S. rebuild, improve and prolong their lives through exercise, nutrition, mind-body health and community-building support programs. ” Carolyn Fugere, Manager of the Larchmont Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s Office, and a second year participant, has never known an organization to actually do this to such an extent, and is proud to be a part of Team Sotheby’s ( their great T-Shirt depicts a huge “S” à la Superman and of course, “S” for Sotheby’s with their motto stating “their only weakness is kryptonite!”). With 24 team members (still time to make it 25), and with each member committed to raise $500 each in their one day challenge, this is a wonderful opportunity to give in honor of your loved ones, to help those who struggle each day, and who need the special support programs this non-profit organization offers and provides. Team Members include Paul Breunich, President & Chief Executive Officer of William Pitt Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s , Vin Socci, Chief Operating Officer William Pitt Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s, and Brad Kimmelman, Manager of the Southfield- Fairfield Brokerage.
Each participant can bike for 10 miles, 15 miles, 25 miles , 50 miles, 75 miles and even 100 miles and for a truly fun filled event, can participate in a 2 day 80 mile event starting at Bear Mountain! Over $1.3 Million raised so far.. with a goal of $2 Million… will you accept the CT Challenge?
This is all in a day’s work for Carolyn. Carolyn is so involved in the community (President of the Larchmont Chamber of Commerce ), is always planning wonderful local events , and one of Carolyn’s favorite quotes is by Albert Einstein “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”
Westchester is GREAT!
