DID YOU KNOW....
Approximately 39.5% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our co-executive director, Allyson Caputo, who passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was the driving force in the founding and running of ERRACE, an inspiration to all who knew her. Her life was not defined by its length, but by its glory. We continue on in her example of perseverance and challenge all of you to do the same.
The ERRACE organization was created by a group of professionals with common goals. Together we strive to raise the awareness of cancer, raise funds for cancer research and to inspire the community to be active and health conscious.
We bring together our expertise from multiple aspects of business management, healthcare, community work, fund-raising and athletic endeavors. We are excited to share a fun, safe and inspiring event with the community for years to come.
Our Annual Event is one big family oriented All-Day party with tons of food from local businesses, entertainment & music, bounce house inflatables, ice cream, massage therapists, Ferrari Concorso, giveaways, wonderful people and camaraderie between particpants. We average around 800 participants each year and 2022 marks our 13th year.
We offer 100/50/25 mile fulley supported road rides, and a 5k run/walk. The road rides are in and around the Farmington Valley, up to Westfield (Stanley Park) & Granville MA, around lake Congamond, on some of the best routes in this area. The 5k run/walk is on the nearby Simsbury Rail Trail.
From our inception, in 2010 - 2020, our beneficiaries were the LiveStrong Foundation & Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center, Avon. Together, we have raised over $2,000,000 for these organizations.
Starting in 2021, our primary Beneficiary is the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center, Avon.
