      Join Us for the 4th Annual M.e.l.t.-a-thon Against Cancer!

Join us for the 4th Annual M.e.l.t.-a-thon Against Cancer on Saturday, June 9, 2018 from 8:00 am - 10:00 am at Riverfront Park Fairgrounds in Glastonbury, CT. Led by nationally-known personal trainer Joe Carabase and the m.e.l.t. gyms, you will get an amazing workout, hang out with awesome people, and raise money to help CT cancer patients and their families.  ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the money that you raise will go to a CT cancer patient to help them pay basic living expenses while they go through treatment. 

We ask each team to raise at least $1,000, so get all your friends and family together - you can have as many people on your team as you want!  We also have fundraising prizes and incentives to keep you inspired, and fundraising tips to get you started.  You are truly  making a difference in the lives of people battling cancer in Connecticut, so thank you for everything you do!

Our Ambassador   


Meet Kyle, our M.e.l.t.-a-thon Against Cancer Ambassador!


Meet Kyle! Kyle is 6 years old and loves soccer! Unfortunately, Kyle was diagnosed with bone cancer in December 2017. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy and had his leg amputated in March. He also had a new procedure called a rotationplasty, where his ankle and foot were rotated and reattached to his thigh, so that his ankle can function in place of his knee. A prosthetic leg will be attached over his foot, so that he can walk and play sports. He will need one prosthetic leg for general life and another for sports – and he will need to replace them as he grows. Supporting the M.e.l.t.-a-thon Against Cancer is a great way to help Kyle and hundreds of other people bravely battling cancer.


About the Connecticut Cancer Foundation



Formerly known as the CT Sports Foundation, the CT Cancer Foundation is a non-profit IRS 501(C) (3) corporation chartered by the State of Connecticut whose mission is to financially assist cancer patients and their families and fund cancer research.

Since its inception, CCF has provided financial assistance to Connecticut families stricken with cancer, for rent, mortgage, utilities, car payments, medical co-pays, food, medications, gasoline and transportation to and from hospital/treatment centers.  In the past 31 year, the CT Cancer Foundation has provided over $5 million in financial aid to CT cancer patients and their families. 

Our goal is to continue assisting as many Connecticut cancer patients as possible, and never have to turn anyone away.
