On April 7 the Glastonbury River Runners held the third annual Spicy Green Bean Run, Diva Run 5K race at Riverfront Park in Glastonbury to benefit the Team Towanda Foundation. The event featured a 5K run, a two mile walk and a kids' fun run. Team Towanda's mission is to support all those in our community who are affected by breast cancer, with a primary focus on the uninsured and under served, by raising breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection. TTF raises funds to pay for mammograms for uninsured women in the Greater Hartford area. To date TTF has donated nearly $300,000 to ECHN, Hartford Hospital and Bristol Hospital, who administer the funds.
