OUR MISSION:  To financially assist Connecticut cancer patients and their families and to fund cancer research. 


October 2015 Cruise Against Cancer

On October 4th the 2015 Cruise Against Cancer cruised to a great success raising over $25,000 thanks to hosts, Marianne and Saul Spector!  Many thanks also to Art LiPuma from Seaside Wine and Spirts in Old Saybrook for organizing a showcase of fine wines for an exclusive wine tasting.  We lucked out with a beautiful day; the sun came out just in time to cruise up the Connecticut River on the Lady Katharine, enjoying the early fall foliage and memorable scenery.  The fundraiser was organized in memory of Louise DeChesser, sister of Marianne, to financially assist other Connecticut cancer patients and their families! A fun time was had by all; we “Wined A little and Laughed A lot” in honor of Louise, just as she would have liked it!

October 2015 Workout Against Cancer

Orangetheory Fitness Shelton hosted a Workout Against Cancer fundraiser for the CT Sports Foundation Against Cancer to benefit 18 month old Victoria from Shelton and other Connecticut cancer patients and their families.  “Burn Calories for a Cause” was the theme of the event held on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015  sponsored by area businesses and organizations with refreshments provided by Focaccia’s of Shelton. Over 40 people participated on teams wearing heart rate monitors to track metabolic burn and the intensity of the workout which included intervals of cardiovascular exercises and strength training. The event raised over $10,000.

A Touchdown for Cancer Patients

The Jon Gruden “Chalk Talk” event on September 3rd was an overwhelming success. The Pier A at the Loft in New York was an absolutely stunning and historic setting where Jon and Ron Jaworski  entertained guests as they wined and dined and listened to their exclusive analysis of the upcoming 2015 NFL season. The Connecticut Sports Foundation and its beneficiaries are truly grateful to Jon Gruden, Ron Jaworski and all of the guests who attended and supported this event, where more than $100,000 was raised to continue financial assistance to Connecticut cancer patients, as well as to fund crucial cancer research at MSK!
