In Pictures: 11th annual Walk-Run for Hope held in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD — An organization that focuses on concern for the caregivers of those diagnosed with cancer held a 5K run and walk Sunday morning at Jennings Beach.

“Today is to raise money for CancerCare,” said Erica Lebensberg, director of special events, who oversaw the 11th annual Walk-Run for Hope.

Despite rainy mist throughout the event, around 350 people took part, with a goal of raising $60,000 for the organization.

“CancerCare is the leading organization that provides emotional, financial and educational support for the loved ones (who) are caregivers,” Lebensberg said.
