Day of Strength

Day of Strength: $183K Raised in One Day!

Wednesday, February 13th




On Wednesday, we challenged our community to raise $150,000 dollars in one day in honor of the strength of each family that has been treated at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center- and we crushed that goal! We raised an incredible $183,660.70 in just 24 hours and proved that when we come together, we can achieve any goal.



Thank you to everyone who donated, fundraised and spread our mission to Connecticut and beyond- you made this day possible!


Much like the kids at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center our fight is NOT over. We will continue to Raise Them Up until Sunday, February 24th at noon when we reveal our final fundraising total! To continue supporting our cause, click the Donate button above!
