Local real estate firm raises funds to benefit the Connecticut Challenge Center for Survivorship
Southport, Conn. (July 18, 2014) —William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that the firm is participating in the tenth annual fund-raising bike ride held by the Connecticut Challenge Center for Survivorship, an organization that provides assistance and resources for cancer survivors.
The cycling event, which includes several routes for riders to choose from ranging from 10 to 100 miles, will be held on July 25 and 26, 2014, with bike rides beginning from the Fairfield County Hunt Club in Westport, Conn. Staff and agents from William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty will raise funds by riding together as “Team Sotheby’s,” as well as by offering donations online. Members of the public can donate as well by visiting the company’s team page here.
Proceeds from the ride will fund survivorship programs as well as research in exercise, nutrition and community support to help cancer survivors, who typically need follow-up care for long after their treatment ends but often stop receiving support at that time. The Connecticut Challenge Center for Survivorship said that last year’s event raised funds to assist over 54,000 cancer survivors.
“Our company is comprised of more than 1,100 agents and employees from many different cultures, yet we all have one thing in common: we have all been touched in some way by cancer, either personally or through a family member or friend,” said William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Southport brokerage manager Brad Kimmelman, who is serving as the Team Sotheby’s captain. “We are proud to participate in this inspiring event, and to help the Connecticut Challenge in their mission to help survivors live the healthiest and happiest lives possible.”
