n April 2013, we lost a very dear friend, Karen Pfaffenbach, to heart disease. Had she known the signs she would have sought treatment. 

It is our mission to raise awareness of the unique symptoms that women experience, in hopes that this may save others.

In March 2018, we will be hosting the fourth annual 5k Run/Walk in memory of Karen. The proceeds will be donated to the Women’s Heart Wellness Center at the Hospital of Central Connecticut.

In order to ensure the success of this race, we rely, in large part, on the support of the business community. You can take part by encouraging your staff to participate, displaying promotional materials, or by providing goods or products. There are also sponsorship opportunities available. In exchange, we offer a variety of ways to promote your business both to our participants and to the community-at-large.

We are very excited about this race in memory of Karen and can’t think of a better way to honor her. Karen lived in East Hampton for over 30 years and was an active member of the community. She was born and raised in Glastonbury and was a talented hair stylist owning her own salon in town. She was a true friend to all who knew her. We are confident that this race will draw a strong field of walkers, runners and spectators. We hope that you can join us to stage the best event possible.
