Donna Defreitas, Account Manager of Personal Lines for Fairfield County Bank Insurance Services, has personal experience with Ann’s Place which inspired her to get involved with the event. "Ann’s place is such a wonderful resource for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer. As I continue my fight with the disease, through the ups and downs, Ann’s place is there whenever I need them. I’m happy to be able to participate in the 5K ‘Run from the Sun’ event to be able to give something back to the community that continues to help families like mine in so many ways," said Donna.
