Michael Cotela, Executive Director of the Stamford Boys & Girls Club said, "It means a lot to us. We're going to take these jackets and give them to the children, some of them who can really use them and a couple of kids in our running team will get some of this gear. It really means that there is a company in community who really gives back to the community."

"We encourage a lot of activity not just throughout the cancer experience but in survivorship as well. Maintaining a level of activity and fitness is such an important part of suvivorship," said Sandra Tripodi of CancerCare.

Stamford Hospital, Family Centers, the ONS Foundation and MarcUS for Change were just some of the organizations who recieved the winter gear.

"We've been working with Fleet Feet for the past 2 years and they have been extremely generous and now this donation is just great. To be have something to give back to the kids and really grow. To see all these organizations here that are focused on the local community and Fleet Feet bringing us all together is really exciting,"said Anthony Conte, representing MarcUS for Change.
