This past Friday Orchards End proudly sponsored and hosted a very special event to benefit New Canaan CARES and the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy.
New Canaan CARES is grass roots, independent, non-profit community organization whose purpose is to advance the health and well-being of youth and families. CARES provides responsive educational programs and professional development that support and strengthen parenting skills, positive youth development, and healthy lifestyles – free-of-charge.
Speaker, Karen Newman, is a world class triathlete, expert dietician with her masters in clinical nutrition, cancer survivor and eating disorder survivor. She has won more medals than I can count to but it’s her heart of gold and the way she uses her story to heal so many that inspires most. Karen is a true beacon of light and she offers her personal reflections, deep faith and wisdom to help others to overcome tragedy and lead a life of purpose.
If anyone didn’t get her book and would like to purchase one, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are $20 and proceeds will go to the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy.
