A MESSAGE FROM Connecticut Children's

Saturday, October 14, 2023: In-Person or Virtual

Team Connecticut Children's is proud to be an official charity team participating and this year we have a goal of 100 runners! Over the past 19 years, team members have raised over $865,000. With your help we'll keep growing, running and supporting Connecticut Children's -- Connecticut's only health system dedicated exclusively to children. Your gift allows Connecticut Children’s to always meet the needs of patients and families, whether we treat the routine illnesses and injuries of childhood or respond to the extraordinary care needs that arise during an unprecedented event. 

This year, we are proud to be partnering with the Megan Schulman Memorial FoundationThrough financial gifts, the Megan Schulman Memorial Foundation fulfills the philanthropic spirit of Megan through empowering organizations, students, and educators who carry out unwavering compassion for others, commitment to community involvement, and dedication to academic excellence. Commitment to supporting those afflicted with Vascular Anomalies, such as those which afflicted Megan, is an important focus of our Foundation. Our ability to support the Vascular Anomalies Department at Connecticut Children’s is something we are truly proud of.
