From humble beginnings, we’ve grown to become the largest student-run philanthropy in the state. We’re proud of that, but our work is far from over. For as long as kids need hospitals, we’ll be around supporting them. And while our efforts are always changing and improving, our core purpose remains the same:
Together with Connecticut Children’s, we believe in giving children the care they deserve.
From 2000 to 2019, HuskyTHON has grown from making $13,878 to over 1.3 million dollars! This is all possible through active planning and fundraising throughout the year. The amazing growth success of HuskyTHON could not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our student-run Management Team, committee members, and all of our participants!
Together, we can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
HuskyTHON 2019 raised a total of $1,328,402.19 for Connecticut Children’s. Connecticut Children’s is a nationally recognized, 187-bed non-profit children’s hospital serving as the primary teaching hospital for the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. The money raised by HuskyTHON helps them continue their mission of giving kids the care they deserve.
Sometimes in life there is that moment when it’s possible to make a change for the better. HuskyTHON is one of those moments.
