South Windsor Hockey Runs the
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

South Windsor Youth Hockey

Hartford, CT - June 1, 2013

By Michael Giannamore

Just a quick note to keep you up to date as to how our "annual" hockey team did in the June 1st Komen Race for the Cure in Hartford, CT.

Our team consisted of 41 runners, 21 of whom were youth hockey players (bantams and younger).

Last year I was able to convince 12 of my Bantam B players to run the 5k race with my family and me, in honor of my sister Karen who died of breast cancer at age 35. Along with several of their family members who also ran, we raised over $3,000.00 for breast cancer research.

This year our team raised $7,298.00, putting us at #6 on the list of highest fund-raising teams! And, we were the ONLY "youth" team in the race.

We had donations from the New York Islanders (coach Bernie Cassell) and South Windsor Arena ( which went to our top youth hockey fundraisers. I personally donated all the PINK shirts in memory of my sister Karen who died from breast cancer several years ago.

Our goal is to double in size each year!
