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.

Why You?
Why now?

  • Imagine if you raised the dollars that led to the discovery of new blood tests to detect cancer at its earliest stages and a new diagnosis or treatment for several types of this killer disease?

  • Imagine if you raised the dollars that resulted in the discovery of a blood test that determines whether people are at risk of a heart attack or stroke and that this finding led to the development of a potentially new treatment to reduce such risk?

  • And imagine if you raised the dollars that led to discoveries about the cause of age-related declines in immune function and to treatment options to effectively manage the resulting chronic diseases?

  • Help us now - and you might just be able to say you did...

    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.
