Cycle of Life
June 7, 2015 - Save the Date!
University of Saint Joseph
West Hartford, CT
The 8th Annual Cycle of Life is a celebration for pediatric cancer survivors and those who are currently undergoing treatment. Each year, Dr. Eileen Gillan proudly presents scholarships to deserving, college-bound high school graduates and we hold a Survivor "Get Out, Get Active" Giveaway to promote a healthy, active lifestyle as part of survivorship. There are many activities offered; last year we were able to add karaoke, bike rodeo and a photobooth through the generosity of partners in the local business community. Survivors can raise money in honor of their STAR Lap, which supports the REACH for the STARS Survivorship Program at Connecticut Children’s. View 2013 event recap video & photo gallery>>>
