CHH Stronger Women Challenge gives proceeds to local charities

Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) Rehabilitation, the Northwest Connecticut YMCA and Torrington Missfits Boot Camp held their 5th Annual Stronger Women-Stronger World 5K Obstacle Challenge this past summer raising over $3,500 for five local charities that serve women in northwest CT.

The Susan B. Anthony Project, CHH’s Pink Rose Fund, The Sunrise Foundation, The Women and Girls Fund and the NWCT YMCA’s Young Women’s Sports Initiative each received a check for $700 to support their programs.

“Our goal for this event was to empower women to be better and stronger than they ever thought they could be and to raise funds to help support women in our community.  We are grateful to our participants, volunteers and sponsors who helped us present an opportunity to have women helping women in Northwest Connecticut.” says Mandy Hill, Rehabilitation Manager at CHH/Race Organizer.

At this year’s event, 82 women participated in the event which was held August 4th at Northwestern Regional School District 7 in Winchester. The obstacles included natural terrain, climbing walls and hills, a tire run, hay bale hurdles, monkey bars and more, all of which challenged each participant.

A special thank you to our sponsors Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, B_Entertained, Center Subaru, and Charles Calder.
