Message from the Co-Executive Directors



In the Spring of 2015, we both participated in our first HuskyTHON. While watching the total reveal after dancing for 18 hours, filled with fatigue but a great deal of hope, little did we know four years later we would be leading the event with a historic goal.


Working with our incredible 28-member Management Team has been an honor this year. The team is comprised of some of the most driven, passionate, Anything For The Kids college students we know. Watching them work together to make HuskyTHON 2018 the biggest and best yet has made this job such a privilege.


When we are standing on stage at 11:59 AM on Sunday February 18th, anticipating the reveal of the total amount raised for HuskyTHON 2018, we will be looking out to the 2,500+ participants, and the 50 kids and families from Connecticut Children’s. We will be thinking about our incredible sponsors and donors who generously donated to our event. We will be thinking about the UConn administration and our advisory team who continue to encourage growth in our program. None of this would have been possible without every single person who loves HuskyTHON, loves Connecticut Children’s, and who have proved what it means to be: All in For The Kids.


On behalf of the 2018 Management Team, thank you for your continued support.


All in For The Kids,

Eliza Kanner & Sam Gay
