Employees, family, and friends gathered for the Connecticut Orthopaedics 2nd Annual Walk-A-Thon on Saturday, September 24 to support Sunshine Kids and children with cancer in our community.
The morning was filled with walking, singing, dancing and games. Most importantly, over $15,000 was raised for Sunshine Kids, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of childhood cancer patients.
Thank you to everyone that attended the event and raised funds for this great cause. We truly appreciate your commitment!
