Ansonia Rod & Gun Club Returns as Finish Line Sponsor For Griffin 5K Walk/Run

By Griffin Hospital on 9/4/2014
DERBY, CT (Sept. 4, 2014) - The Ansonia Rod & Gun Club continued its generous support of the Annual Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital 5K Walk/Run with a recent donation of $5,000 to be the event’s finish line sponsor.

The donation was spearheaded by Ansonia Rod & Gun Club Treasurer Horace Behrle, who also serves as a Volunteer Ambassador at the Center for Cancer Care.

Set for Oct. 18, this will be the sixth year for the Center for Cancer Care 5K Walk/Run, which brings together cancer patients, their family members, and friends, to run or walk through Derby and Ansonia in honor, memory, or celebration of a loved one and their cancer journey. The event has grown from approximately 250 participants in its inaugural year in 2009, to more than 500 participants last October.
The event still has sponsorship opportunities available, include signage at the event, logos on the event promotional materials and T-shirts, and opportunities to have a table to distribute products at the event or put items, coupons or promotional material in participant give-away bags.
