Jamie’s Run for Connecticut Children’s
Experience the thrill of joining more than 800 runners, walkers and fun runners in Connecticut Children’s largest 5K road race event!
This inspirational morning features music, inflatables, refreshments, kids’ activities, mascots and more.
The 5K certified course is fast and flat – a great Manchester Road Race qualifier – and circles the historic Wethersfield Town Green. Prizes will be awarded for the top three male/female finishers in each age category.
The JK Kids K is one of the largest fun runs in the area and is chip timed with amazing LEGO prizes in 4 age categories!
The Charity Walk allows all ages and paces to join in the fun and walk for the cause.
Individual and team fundraising is available at jamiesrun.org.
Jamie Knotts was only 5 months old when she passed away from a rare liver cancer. Over the past seven years, Jamie’s Run has raised more than $330,000 for Cancer Clinical Trials and Family Support Programs at Connecticut Children’s in her name.
Your participation supports leading-edge cancer research, providing essential resources necessary to find a cure. Beyond the medicine, emotional and financial assistance is crucial to families fighting this disease. The diagnosis of a child with cancer is devastating. Until a cure is found, the mission of Jamie’s Run is to care for the whole family as they move through treatment and beyond.
