Westporters who have battled cancer are lucky to have the support of friends and family.
Now they’ve got local businesses behind them too.
Upper Deck Fitness and National Hall are sponsoring a special Women’s Wellness and Survivor Day next Saturday (October 20, 9:30 a.m.).
The event honors the strength of women who have overcome cancer, by treating them (and their friends and families) to a morning of nourishment.
Participants will enjoy a gentle outdoor workout on the Saugatuck River, followed by a communal brunch courtesy of Bartaco, OKO, Winfield Deli, Amis Trattoria, New Wave Seafood and Rye Ridge Deli.
Pampering is provided by Whip Salon, Beautycounter and the massage therapists of Upper Deck Fitness.
Lululemon, Athleta and others are contributing raffle prizes.
Guest speakers include Maureen Lutz, who has written about surviving breast cancer and founded the non-profit Necessities Bags, and Upper Deck CEO Suzanne Vita Palazzo, who founded the Badass and Beautiful blog.
The event is free, but RSVPs are requested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions? Call 203-309-6231.
