ERRACE 2016: Inspiring the Community

On July 16, hundreds of people gathered outside the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute in Avon for the eighth annual ERRACE (Everyone Run/Ride Against Cancer Everyday).

Dr. Andrew Caputo, orthopedic surgeon at Hartford Hospital, started the event when his wife Allyson Caputo was diagnosed with cancer. The Caputo family launched the ERRACE organization to raise awareness, as well as money for cancer research. Allyson passed away in 2012 after a long and courageous battle with cancer, but her legacy lives on in the many lives she touched.

Every year, ERRACE brings together expertise from every aspect of health care and challenges participants with a 25-,  50-, or 100-mile road bike ride, a 15-mile mountain bike ride  and a 5 km run/walk.
