2023 Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half-Marathon
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 Foundation. Through
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’sis something we are
truly proud of.
