“We’re very proud to be partnering with the CT Challenge for our 5K Tiger Dash,” Sound Tigers President Howard Saffan said. “They have done so much for our region and for cancer survivors throughout the state.
“It was a no-brainer to team up with them for this great event. We intend to sponsor the 5K Tiger Dash annually.”
All participants will receive a welcome bag with a short sleeve dry fit shirt and a ticket to that day’s hockey game against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at 3 p.m. A portion of the proceeds for the event will benefit CT Challenge.
“We are very grateful to the Sound Tigers for coming out in support of cancer survivors with such a great event,” said CT Challenge Co-Founder, President and cancer survivor Jeff Keith. “It is a strong statement of their commitment to this exploding demographic.
“The Tiger Dash and the game that follows at 3 p.m. are a great fit with our mission to celebrate cancer survivors and inspire them to reclaim their lives after cancer through motivational exercise, nutrition and community-building support programs.”
