The Amber Room Colonnade
This is a great fundraiser for Ann’s Place cancer support services. All proceeds go directly to Ann’s Place and help keep our doors open and our cancer support services FREE of charge to all those in need in our community.
Bring your family, friends, and coworkers to run or walk in this great Annual 5K.
NOTE TO RETURNING FUNDRAISING TEAMS: Registration for the race and fundraising is now done at the same time!
Build a team or create your own unique fundraising page. All funds go directly towards clinical services at Ann's Place. For every $100 raised a new client receives a full month of free services!
Make the race a fun team building activity. Waterworks runners, for example, decided to wear superhero costumes when someone donated $500 to their campaign. Other groups got team shirts. The after-party is a great time to hang out with friends and colleagues (non-runners welcome for just $10).
The 2018 Race Was Amazing! Thank you for your Support!!!
Special kudos to the Amber room staff (the chocolate covered strawberries were over the top!) and to Waterworks who were certainly our superheroes - raising extra funds by dressing up (so creative!). We are humbled by your generosity.

Allie has decided to do her Mitzvah project to support Ann’s Place and the art programs. Here is what she has to say:
“Hi! My name is Allie Levine. For my mitzvah project, I chose to help Ann's Place. Our family, like so many others, has been touched by the plague of cancer. Ann's Place is a community-based cancer support program located in Danbury, CT. It offers counseling, support groups, and wellness activities at no charge. It's a nonprofit serving CT and Hudson Valley, NY.
My project is Allie's Art-To-Go! I will be collecting specific art supplies and then assembling them to be given to people in the art classes. It will mean a lot to them to have their own kit to take home. I am hoping to collect enough for 3 classes which will help 45 people!”

Join The Pilates Advantage for wellness fun while doing great things for Ann’s Place!
Here is what they have to say…
“As we celebrate our 11th Anniversary here at The Pilates Advantage it is time for us to give back....
That said I am asking for your help in supporting Ann's Place which provides comfort, support, and resources to people living with cancer and their loved ones. They serve over 1100 active clients of all ages, with all types of cancer across Connecticut and eastern New York state - free of charge! Supporting Ann's Place is close to our hearts because we’ve had several clients affected by all types of cancer, especially breast cancer. I have personally witnessed how this devastating disease affects not only the individual, but all family members and friends. Many of our clients have received support from Ann's Place as 47% of Ann’s Place annual budget goes to help local breast cancer patients and their families.
When we contacted them, we were informed that one of their donors was unable to support Ann’s Place this year leaving a $7,500 shortfall specifically for their breast cancer support groups. Let's rally together to help bridge the gap!!”
