The William Raveis Real Estate office in Chappaqua has launched a community fundraising effort to benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. This fundraising effort will tie-in with the William Raveis Ride & Walk event on Saturday, September 12, 2015, 8 a.m. at Jennings Beach, 880 S. Benson Road, Fairfield, CT.
Partner to Help Fund Research
William Raveis chose to partner with the Damon Runyon Cancer Research foundation because the organization “identifies new generations of cancer researchers who have the brilliance, creativity and drive to revolutionize cancer research, and provides them with funding to pursue their boldest ideas in search of new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat all forms of cancer.”
“William Raveis is headquartered in Shelton, CT, and the Ride & Walk events are being held in both MA and CT for now,” says Chappaqua Team Captain Elise Levine Cooper. “I have to say that just about everybody I know has dealt with cancer on some level and has felt the ravages of this disease. We need to find cures for these cancers and the best way to do this is to invest in the most brilliant minds. That is why we support the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
“We want to reach out to our friends and family members in Chappaqua and beyond and ask for any kind of donation because Team Chappaqua is here to make an important difference in the fight against cancer! We are hoping to form a Westchester Ride & Walk in the near future.”
“We have been following the journey of Candy Raveis, William Raveis’s wife as she has shared her personal battle with leukemia with the entire Raveis company since her diagnosis in 2014,” says Susan Myers, Office Manager of the Raveis Chappaqua Office.
Candy Raveis: Official Spokes-woman
“Candy is a warrior. She has documented this most difficult chapter in her life and she has fought hard and is here to tell her story. Candy has taken her experience and translated it into her work as the official spokesperson for the partnership between the William Raveis Charitable Fund and the Damon Runyon Cancer Foundation.”
One hundred percent of the funds raised goes to cancer research. We welcome everyone to join us on Saturday, September 12 at the Ride & Walk Event.
Please stop by the office at 75 N. Greeley Avenue in Chappaqua to sign up. If you can’t participate, all donations are welcome!
