Experience the THRILL with more than 1,000 Runners!

Lace up for Connecticut Children’s largest 5K road race event. The 10th 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 Medical Center, 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 Medical Center 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.
