UPDATE FROM CT BHI: As the COVID-19 outbreak has no definitive end at this point, the Board of Directors of CT BHI has unanimously decided to follow CDC directives and reschedule this year’s RACE IN THE PARK to May 8, 2021.

It was a hard decision to make, but it is unmistakably the right decision. As much as we want to continue to carry out our mission to raise funds for leading-edge breast cancer research in Connecticut, it would be irresponsible to put our survivors, participants, volunteers, and sponsors at risk.

CT BHI still needs your support, especially now, to accelerate important breast cancer research in Connecticut. We cannot allow innovative research to go unfunded – Connecticut could break through with one of the answers to breast cancer.

We are eternally grateful to each of our extraordinary volunteers, participants, supporters, survivors and sponsors, for unrelenting passion and commitment. We look forward to keeping in touch through the year, and seeing you at Walnut Hill Park in New Britain on Saturday, May 8, 2021.

On behalf of the CT BHI Board of Directors,

Joyce G. Bray
President, CT Breast Health Initiative, Inc.

The Connecticut RACE IN THE PARK takes place annually each May on the Saturday before Mother’s Day in New Britain’s historic Walnut Hill Park. Each year, thousands gather to participate in race day festivities and events while honoring survivors, remembering loved ones, celebrating life and most importantly, raising much needed funds to advance the fight against breast cancer in Connecticut.

By joining The Race, pledging support or becoming a valuable sponsor, participants help raise awareness and funds to support the fight against breast cancer in Connecticut.

This annual family event includes a 5K, a 1 mile and 4K walk, a Kids’ 1 mile and ½ mile, food trucks, live music, kids’ games. Touch a truck, shopping and raffles/silent auction.

100% raised in Connecticut. 100% stays in Connecticut. Join The Race. Join the cause.
