CFR Vermont / New Hampshire

CFR's retreat, serving women of Vermont and New Hampshire, is part of the Casting for Recovery national program. We offer no-cost weekend fly-fishing retreats to breast cancer survivors of all ages and in all stages of treatment and recovery. CFR is a national non-profit support and educational organization for breast cancer survivors that combines counseling, medical information and instruction in fly fishing to help women improve their quality of life after a breast cancer diagnosis.

Casting for Recovery is proud to have its roots in the state of Vermont, where it began as a grassroots organization in 1996.

Brooks Brothers' Golden Fleece Foundation
$5,000 Donation

This year, the Brooks Brothers' Golden Fleece Foundation started an initiative called the Community Challenge, where any employee of Brooks Brothers' could request grant funds for a local non-profit.

The top finalist was Tylor Purdy of the Manchester store. With the support of Store Manager, Michelle Bahan-Lampron and the entire store team, Tylor's proposal for our VT/NH program was the overall favorite out of more than 70 applications! We want to thank Tylor and everyone at Brooks Brothers' for this amazing donation and their support of breast cancer survivors in our area!
