Team Momentum Runs in New Haven Road Race on Labor Day
For thirty-three years, thousands of runners have participated in the Labor Day New Haven Road Race. This year, a special group of runners – neighbors, friends, colleagues - joined together to run in support of Momentum Fund. Spearheaded by YCC development director Peter Lamothe, Team Momentum totaled eighteen running the 20K. Plans are already being made to expand Team Momentum’s presence next year at the annual event.
Momentum Fund is a joint effort of Yale Cancer Center and Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven providing essential funding for breakthrough cancer research and compassionate patient care by combining the gifts of many donors. This support is critical to ensure that new research can be pursued without delay, promising treatments are aggressively developed and patient care is continuously enhanced.
