Proceeds from this reception will support the 2019 Geno Auriemma’s Fore the Kids Tournament funding priorities – the purchase of two important pieces of equipment for Connecticut Children’s:
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) new transport isolette, which is a self-contained, high-performance transport incubator. As a Level IV NICU, the highest level trauma certification, the Medical Center treats the sickest infants in the region. Last year more than 300 newborns required transportion to Connecticut Children’s from regional hospitals. This new isolette will enhance the care we provide to these tiny patients on their way to Connecticut Children’s.
- Highly specialized Spinal Surgery Table for patients undergoing complex spine surgeries. Surgeons can more easily position, rotate and stabilize the patients using this highly specialized device. This equipment will bring next-level care and positive outcomes to children with spinal issues and deformities.

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.
