CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – The William Raveis Real Estate office in Chappaqua has launched a community fundraising effort to benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation that will correlate with the William Raveis Ride & Walk event Saturday, Sept. 12 at 8 a.m. at Jennings Beach, 880 S. Benson Road, Fairfield, Connecticut.
William Raveis chose to partner with the Damon Runyon Cancer Research foundation because the organization “identifies new generations of cancer researchers who have the brilliance, creativity and drive to revolutionize cancer research, and provides them with funding to pursue their boldest ideas in search of new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat all forms of cancer,” according to the organization.
“William Raveis is headquartered in Shelton, Connecticut, and the Ride & Walk events are being held in both Massachusetts and Connecticut for now,” said Chappaqua Team Captain Elise Levine Cooper. “I have to say that just about everybody I know has dealt with cancer on some level and has felt the ravages of this disease. We need to find cures for these cancers and the best way to do this is to invest in the most brilliant minds. That is why we support the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.”
“We have been following the journey of Candy Raveis, William Raveis’s wife as she has shared her personal battle with leukemia with the entire Raveis company since her diagnosis in 2014,” said Susan Myers, office manager of the Raveis Chappaqua office. “Candy is a warrior. She has documented this most difficult chapter in her life and she has fought hard and is here to tell her story. Candy has taken her experience and translated it into her work as the official spokesperson for the partnership between the William Raveis Charitable Fund and the Damon Runyon Cancer Foundation.”
To make a donation, visit the William Raveis Chappaqua Team Page. All of the funds raised will go to cancer research.
