Ridgefield Kids Hold Car Wash to Support Dad and CT Challenge

Fitzpatrick Kids' fundraiser for CT Challenge

Editor's note: Ridgefield resident Paul Fitzpatrick fought a rare form of lung cancer when he was 27 and chose to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his successful surgery by participating in the Connecticut Challenge and cycling 100 miles! He set an ambitious goal of raising $10,000 for CT Challenge and on Saturday, August 10 from 8 to 11am, his kids and wife, Kate, will roll up their sleeves (and get wet) so their dad's goal is reached!

If you'd like to support the Fitzpatrick kids and CT Challenge (and get your car sparkling clean) email Kate Fitzpatrick and she will give you their home address:   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our annual car wash fundraiser is back! Last summer these cuties raised over $800 for The T.J. Martell Foundation for Cancer Research. This year they've informed us they're holding a car wash at our home on August 10th 8-11am to raise money for CT Challenge and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5, $50 or $500. If you can't join us in person on the 10th and put these kids to work, feel free to donate online. 

Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. I've included the information below about The CT Challenge, the same nonprofit whose bike ride their dad Paul Fitzpatrick recently completed. 

The primary purpose of CT Challenge is to equip cancer survivors with the game-changing exercise, nutrition and mind-body knowledge, tools, community and mindset needed to reclaim and rebuild their lives after diagnosis and treatment.

The CT Challenge is a grassroots charity bike ride that raises money for important cancer survivor programs. The ride features gorgeous routes of 10-100 miles to attract all levels of cycling skills.
