Celebrate the 20th Annual 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. Now in its 20th year, Concorso Ferrari & Friends is the signature automobile event for 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.
Join our car display or join us as a sponsor, volunteer or attendee! This event is free for the public to attend.
Lace up and join us at the 6th Annual Reid’s Run 5K Trail Run and Walk. Enjoy the pristine woods of Winding Trails, where we encourage all skill levels to run in the trail race or take in the scenery on the non-competitive 5K walk.
Enjoy music, refreshments, fire truck demonstrations, awards and more. Reid’s Run is a rewarding celebration you will enjoy whether you are a serious athlete or simply love the outdoors. Your participation in the race and/or as a fundraiser supports the Reid R. Sacco Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Program at Connecticut Children’s.
Experience the THRILL with more than 1,100 Runners!
Lace up for Connecticut Children’s largest 5K road race event. The 11th Annual Road Race, walk and Kids’ K is perfect for seasoned runners and bumbling toddlers alike! The professionally-run 5K circles the historic Town Green, and the Kids K fun run has 4 age categories with great LEGO prizes. You’ll have so much fun while supporting vital cancer research and family support at Connecticut Children’s, giving kids and families hope!
Why not set up a fundraising team?
Jamie Knotts lost her battle with a rare liver cancer at 5 1/2 months old in 2010. This race not only honors Jamie, but also the doctors, nurses and staff at Connecticut Children’s who are living angels to the children and families who are currently struggling with cancer and blood disorders.
Your participation will ensure a brighter future for children all over Connecticut, who come to Connecticut Children’s for state-of-the-art care. The race for a cure for many forms of cancer and blood disorders continues. The proceeds equally support the Cancer Clinical Trials Program, which helps to offer the latest advancements in treatment, and the Family Assistance Fund, because the last thing a parent needs to worry about when their child is diagnosed with cancer is how to pay the bills.
