Virtual 5k—Your Pace, Your Place
At times like this, it’s important to take care of yourself and your family. As a valued member of the Connecticut Children’s family, we take your health and well-being very seriously. This year Miles for Miracles will happen virtually – your pace, your place! Our friends at Bendett & McHugh, P.C. wanted to continue supporting Connecticut Children’s, while providing you the opportunity to socially distance and still participate in this event you know and love. Run or walk, fast or slow, one mile or 3.1 – it’s up to you – and it all benefits the patients and families at Connecticut Children’s.
Bendett & McHugh, P.C. is proud to continue the Miles for Miracles tradition of supporting the highest quality patient care and enhancing the health and well-being of the children and families in our community.
The Allied Printing Services Charitable Foundation’s 13th Annual Golf Tournament will take place Thursday, October 1, 2020 at Tunxis Country Club.

Allied has generously raised more than $200,000 for Connecticut Children’s, touching every corner of the Medical Center. Since 2008, Allied has been a generous supporter of Connecticut Children’s Greatest Need Children’s Fund, and beginning in 2016, proceeds have supported Connecticut Children’s Office for Community Child Health (the Office).
