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!

2015 Rebecca Lobo's Clinic Against Cancer

Our first Rebecca Lobo Basketball Clinic, held at Sacred Heart University was a worthy start to what we hope will become an annual fundraiser.   A great big thanks to Rebecca for donating her time and talents, making the clinic a fun, once in a lifetime experience to learn from one of the best.  The girls picked up valuable basketball pointers from the Connecticut legend!  Another big thanks to the Sacred Heart University Women’s Basketball Team for volunteering their help to make the event an enjoyable learning experience for the participants; they were an outstanding representation of SHU. The girls were in awe of Rebecca and the SHU women!
