Bucket List Item: JOIN THE RACE FOR A CURE

Based in Connecticut, Project Purple supports patients struggling with medical, pharmaceutical, and everyday living expenses related to their fight against pancreatic cancer. By 2020, statistics indicate that pancreatic cancer will be the second deadliest cancer, with only 1 out of 5 cases even considered operable. Primary fundraising for this group comes from team participation in marathons, half marathons, and 5K races across the country—in fact, Project Purple launched its first ever fundraising team at our 2010 New Haven Road Race in honor of the founder's father, Giovanni. Sadly pancreatic cancer took his life exactly one year later on race day and it is in his memory Project Purple fights for a cure. With clinical trials and early detection at the forefront of this organization's mission, they frequently fund research at Beth Israel, Tufts Medical Center, and the University of Nebraska.

Bucket List Item: HELP A CHILD IN NEED

Camp Courant serves over 1,000 of Hartford's children, ages 5 to 12, for six weeks every summer. It is the largest FREE summer day camp in the nation and is the only summer camp available to Hartford’s inner-city youth which provides transportation, preventive and acute health and social work services, two nutritious meals a day, and recreational, educational and developmental activities, all at no cost to the camper or his or her family. This year, Camp Courant is celebrating its 125th year in service and has created a legacy to be proud of—many past campers return to work at the camp as teen counselors, inspired to deliver the same positive impact and unforgettable memories they experienced to the next generation of kids.
