What is HuskyTHON?


Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is a nationally recognized, non-profit children’s hospital and serves as the primary teaching hospital for UConn’s School of Medicine. They are one of 170 children’s hospitals across the US and Canada that comprise Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.


At these hospitals, 62 children are treated by highly trained professionals every minute – that’s one child every second. From cancer to traumatic injuries or genetic diseases, Connecticut Children’s always has their doors open and never turns a family away.



Connecticut Children’s relies on OUR support and 2320 UConn students stepped up to the plate. They helped make HuskyTHON the 2nd largest event to support their efforts.


Through our efforts, and the generosity of our families and friends, we are helping Connecticut Children’s realize our goal of getting kids healthy and getting kids home. There are no limits to what we will do for a child, but no matter how far we go, it’s the trip home that truly heals.


In 2018, it is our goal to make HuskyTHON the event those amazing patient families deserve!
