5K to benefit Derby cancer center coming up June 6
By Jean Falbo-Sosnovich
DERBY >> Battling, and ultimately beating, cancer is something Horace Behrle knows about firsthand.
That’s why Behrle, treasurer of the Ansonia Rod & Gun Club, said he feels so strongly about the group donating funds each year to benefit the Griffin Hospital Center for Cancer Care’s Annual 5K Walk/Run.
“The center is a very special place for me because I beat cancer here,” said Behrle, who also serves as a volunteer ambassador at the Center for Cancer Care. “Fighting cancer and caring for cancer patients is important to the Ansonia Rod & Gun Club because we’ve lost a few guys to cancer and we know how hard it can be on a person.”
The club recently donated $5,000 to be the 5K’s finish line sponsor, according to Christian Meagher, Griffin’s communications specialist and 5K director, and has made donations to the event for the past five years.
