Northwest Catholic High School - West Hartford, Connecticut
Outstanding rides of 15, 30 and 62 miles and a 5K walk on Northwest Catholic's Track – all to raise dollars for life-saving medical research and care at UConn Health. Don’t have time to ride or walk – consider becoming a virtual rider or walker!
Financial support for medical research and care is declining - putting at risk vital UConn Health projects focused on cancer, heart disease, stroke, and immune disorders.
The Jim Calhoun Ride and Walk for Lifesaving Research and Care is a vitally important special event to raise dollars urgently needed for the advanced medical research and care taking place at UConn Health, one of the nation’s leading medical research institutions.
Right now - UConn Health researchers are working on making discoveries in these very research areas. The challenge - declining research funds for medical research nationwide - putting these very projects at risk.
Please help our researchers complete their lifesaving work by signing up to ride or walk today! Remember - 90 % of every dollar contributed by you and your supporters will go directly to the cause.
