HuskyTHONRaise them up!

HuskyTHON is a year-long fund-raising effort coordinated by students at the University of Connecticut, which culminates in an eighteen-hour dance marathon celebration over the course of a weekend in February.

From humble beginnings, HuskyTHON has grown to become the largest fund-raising event in support of Connecticut Children’s. UConn students are proud of this accomplishment, but they are not stopping there. Their motto is “FTK” (For The Kids), and while their efforts are always evolving, their core purpose remains the same:

“Together with Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, we believe in giving children the care they deserve.”

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is a nationally recognized, non-profit children’s hospital and serves as the primary teaching hospital for UConn’s School of Medicine. They are one of 170 children’s hospitals across the US and Canada that comprise Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

At these hospitals, 62 children are treated by highly trained professionals every minute – that’s one child every second.

From cancer to a traumatic injury or a genetic disease, Connecticut Children’s always has their doors open and never turns a family away.

Concorso Ferrari & Friends @ West Hartford Center
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Paint the Town Ferrari Red and Join Us for Concorso Ferrari & Friends.

Concorso Ferrari & Friends was created by a group of owners who wanted to use their exotic automobiles to put smiles on the faces of patients at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Now in its 19th year, Concorso Ferrari & Friends has become the signature automobile event in Southern New England. It celebrates all makes and models of Italian automobiles—from vintage Alfa Romeos, Fiats and Lamborghinis to the supercars of Ferrari, Pagani and Maserati—while raising awareness and critical funding to support Connecticut Children’s. More information coming in January 2019.



The event attracts 10,000 Connecticut Children’s supporters and car enthusiasts each year.

Sponsors, car owners and spectators can visit the many unique shops and restaurants on LaSalle Road while viewing the wide array of autos, shopping at one of the many vendors and listening to the music and driver interviews featured throughout the day.

The highlight of the event is the Patient Parade in which 40 Connecticut Children’s patients get a chance to ride in these incredible cars into the heart of West Hartford on LaSalle Road, where they are greeted by the cheers of thousands of spectators and receive a red-carpet welcome. A truly enjoyable day for all.

Help kids like Siaana

Thankful. Life-altering news, yet one sentiment remained. Thankful.

An unexpected visit to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center led to a battery of tests. And then came the diagnosis: a congenital heart defect. Ten-month-old Siaana would require emergency open-heart surgery.

Her parents spent the week of Thanksgiving in the intensive care unit where Siaana began her journey to recovery… feeling thankful that their baby girl would have the chance to grow up.
