The 20th Annual 5K Run/Walk for Nancy’s Kids – an event to raise funds for children with complex medical needs cared for at Connecticut Children’s – will be held in West Hartford on Sept. 30. The event honors the life the Dr. Nancy Law, a pediatrician who worked at CT Children’s. The event is hosted by the UConn Pediatric Residency Program and healthcare team members from Connecticut Children’s.


Join the UConn Pediatric Residents and Connecticut Children’s for their 20th Annual 5K Run/Walk for Nancy’s Kids.

On Sept. 30, join us for a 5K that includes a timed race concurrent with a relaxing walk through the beautiful paved West Hartford MDC Reservoir Park on Farmington Avenue.

Dr. Nancy Law dedicated much of her career to caring for medically complex children. She understood that the families caring for a child with medically complex conditions often had significant financial burdens. So before her death, she started a special fund to help support these families.
