At Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation, our mission is to support the Medical Center. By bringing together patient families, donors, community members, philanthropic partners and others to raise the financial resources needed to invest in people, research, technology and state-of-the-art equipment, we can support Connecticut Children’s in providing the care our children need and deserve.
Patient care visits made possible by contributions to the Connecticut Children's Annual Giving Fund, which touches every corner of the Medical Center.
Patients in need of critical-care were transported to Connecticut Children's from regional hospitals. Of that, more than 300 were NICU babies.
Patient visits to the emergency department which equates to more than 155 per day. No one is turned away due to an inability to pay.
The Joe Kelly Memorial Road Race is held in memory of Joseph Kelly who courageously battled brain cancer for two years. While Joe was only 14 when he passed away, his goodness and positive attitude for life impacted all of those who knew him. He was thoughtful, kind, generous and truly cared for others. Joe was passionate about sports – whether he was playing football, baseball or basketball, he was competitive but mostly he just loved being part of a team.
Proceeds from this event will be directed to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for the purpose of providing assistance and services for families with children undergoing treatment in the Oncology Department.
