Breast Cancer Alliance 5K Run/Walk for Hope Honoring–Omnicom Group, April 30

Date: April 30, 2017

Time: 7:30 am

Greenwich will be in pink on April 30th as hundreds of Breast Cancer Alliance’s supporters—from toddlers to grandparents—walk and run to honor and remember those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. Dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives to the disease and honoring the courage of breast cancer survivors, the event brings together families, friends and neighbors from Connecticut, New York and beyond.

This year, the Breast Cancer Alliance is honored to present the inaugural HOPE Award to Omnicom Group in recognition of their steadfast commitment and generosity as Platinum lead sponsor of the 5K Run/Walk for Hope.

BCA Executive Director Yonni Wattenmaker will present the award to Mr. Dennis Hewitt, Treasurer, Omnicom Group, a leading marketing and global communications company, and President and Chief Executive Officer of Omnicom Capital, Inc., with offices in Greenwich, CT, London and Dublin.

Breast Cancer Alliance is one of the largest private, non-corporate breast-cancer organizations in the U.S. Since its founding in 1996, BCA has awarded approximately $22 million in grants, supporting its mission to improve survival rates and quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer through better prevention, early detection, treatment and cure. To promote these goals, the organization invests in innovative research, breast surgery fellowships, regional education, dignified support and screening for the uninsured and underserved.
