Every year for the past four years, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k has taken place in Westport’s Sherwood Island State Park. “The series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created,” according to the Susan G. Komen Southern New England web site. The Westport 2016 event alone raised $100,000 in the fight against breast cancer.
The upscale and eclectic town of Westport, CT, is just over an hour's train ride from Grand Central. Known as a forward-thinking community, Westport has historically served as an artist's haven. This tradition continues today through venues such as the Westport Country Playhouse, a theater originally opened in the 1930's with a stage large enough to feature Broadway-sized performances. Westport is perfect for the culturally-inclined who are looking for a laid back locale that's equal parts city and country.
