Little Miracles - NICU
Support Team Little Miracles!
We are participating in the 2017 Eversource Hartford Marathon as part of Team CT Children's (for the third year!), representing the Neonatal ICU. We want you to be a part of the fun. The race is open to everyone - patients, families, friends, virtual runners, and even kids. Also, cheerleaders!
We are running in honor of the thousands of families and babies who come to CT Children's needing expertise assistance. 1% of all of babies will require increased support and subsequent care in the intensive care unit. Some are micropreemies weighing less than a pound and some are full term who need medical or surgical procedures. All those babies have one thing in common - their persistance and strength. So we are doing the same, in their honor, through this running endever.
The money raised by this team of nurses will directly benefit our families and staff at CCMC NICU to be able to provide the best care of the babies.
