Lace up and join us at the 5th 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 Medical Center.
The scenic Nevers Road Park is the perfect spot for an inspirational 5K race supporting patients and families at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Run 4 Robin welcomes runners and walkers at any level, from the recreational walker to the experienced road runner. Leashed pets and jogging strollers welcome. By registering today, you are helping our researchers push the boundaries to develop the best clinical trials for young patients who are bravely battling kidney disease.
The Need You Now Fund was created at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in memory of Robin, Kaylee’s mother, who passed away suddenly in 2015. The fund will help further kidney disease research and support families cared for by the Division of Nephrology who are facing financial challenges. Kaylee is battling this disease without her mom, and you can be there to support her and kids like her by joining Run 4 Robin now.
Don’t delay, register and start fundraising today!
