We are proactively reviewing all events organized by the Connecticut Children’s Foundation scheduled through June 2020. As we determine the future of each event, we will communicate plans to our guests and sponsors. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please check back here for the most up-to-date notices for Foundation events, including events hosted by third-parties. Questions? Please contact email@example.com.
There are many events held throughout the year in support of Connecticut Children’s. Whether you are looking for a family friendly event or an adult’s night out, it’s a great way to show your support to local businesses & organizations that support the programs and services we provide. Find an event and mark your calendar!
QTHON is a year-long fundraising enterprise led by Quinnipiac University students, which culminates in a 10-hour dance marathon to raise funds and awareness in support of Connecticut Children’s. However, due to the current crisis these students are bringing their event virtual this year!
Follow our Virtual Dance Marathon on Instagram!
In 2019, over 1,700 dancers raised more than $332,000. This brings the students’ eight-year cumulative giving total to more than $1 million. QTHON strives to bring together the student body and the local community to raise funds in support of valuable care that patients and their families receive at Connecticut Children’s.
In addition to the Quinnipiac students, patient families from Connecticut Children’s will attend the event and will dance the night away. They are matched with student groups and are able to dance, play games, participate in arts and crafts, and much more.

Robby lost his 3 1/2 year battle with cancer in September 2015. Since then, other children from our area have lost their battles. Robby’s wish was that we continue his fight, the fight. It is children like Robby that motivate us and our family of volunteers to do what we can to stop something which should never happen.
