Florence Thermidor Walk/Run for Brain Tumor Awareness May 2ndApril 23, 2015
Created in memory of a beloved sister, mother, and wife, the Florence Thermidor 5K Walk/Run for Brain Tumor Awareness launches this year. Funds raised at the 5K will go to the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance ("CTBTA"). Florence, who passed away from complications of Glioblastoma Multiforme in May of 2008, is the mother of Sadiya Thermidor, a fourth-year medical student at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. In order to honor her mother and bring awareness to brain cancer treatment and the need for a cure, Sadiya has teamed up with the CTBTA and members of the UCONN community to put together the walk/run to help find funding to support the research and care systems vital to patients and loved ones whose lives are impacted by brain cancer. Everyone is welcome to participate in this walk/run on the Farmington UCONN campus!
The Walk/Run is $25 per registrant, and all proceeds go to the CTBTA.
The race kicks off at 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 2, 2015. Join us!
