Posted by CNF President on June 19, 2012  |   No Comments »

The Connecticut Nurses’ Foundation proudly supports and participates in the annual Petit Family Foundation & GE 5k Road Race, Fitness Walk and Kids Fun Run.

The Petit Family Foundation honors the memories of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, RN, Hayley Elizabeth Petit and Michaela Rose Petit by continuing the kindness, idealism and activism that defined their lives.

“Jennifer loved caring for children from the oncology floor at Children’s Hopsital in Pittsburgh, Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, on the adolescent unit at Yale New Haven Hospital and finally to the health center at Chesire Academy. Please honor her memory by participating in this event and donating to the Connecticut Nurses’ Foundation Petit Family Scholarship.”   – William A. Petit, Jr. MD

The Foundation’s funds are given to help foster the education of young people, especially women in the sciences; to improve the lives of those affected by chronic illness; and to support efforts to protect and help those affected by violence.
