STAMFORD, Conn. -- The St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, presented by fifth-year sponsor CULTEC Inc., will take place on Saturday, Sept. 26 in Stamford.
This September, people in 58 cities nationwide will lace up their sneakers and take to the streets in support of kids and families battling childhood cancer by participating in the inaugural St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.
The event will kick off at Harbor Point at 100 Washington Blvd., in front of World of Beer and Palomba Restaurants, and the 5K walk and run route will conclude on the boardwalk.
Registration for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer is $10 for adults and children ages 6 and up. Participants are encouraged to form teams and raise funds to help support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, with incentives beginning at the $100 and $250 fundraising levels.

So far, the Southern Connecticut Walk/Run has raised nearly $25,000 in the form of both donations and scholarships; about 25 percent of the way toward its fundraising goal of $90,000.
To further their fundraising goal, CULTEC also presents "A Night with Phil Quinn-Medium & Life Guide" on Sept. 18 at the Hampton Inn in Danbury, with all proceeds going directly towards the Walk/Run fundraising efforts.
Quinn ( www.philquinn.com ) has appeared on WTNH’s "Connecticut Style" several times. For more than two decades, Quinn has been connecting people with loved ones who have crossed over, helping them find closure and move forward from their loss.
“Sponsoring the St. Jude Walk is something we look forward to each year,” said Lisa Lynch, TEAM CULTEC captain and CULTEC customer service representative.
“Being that CULTEC as a company is such a close-knit family, we know the importance of leaning on each other for support when life throws us difficult challenges. St. Jude provides that same support to all of its children and their families – at no cost to them – and any way we can raise money to support that mission gives us all immense pride. It is the least we can do to give back to a cause that does so much for others and asks nothing in return.”
