The Connecticut American Legion has been a strong advocate for children and youth since its inception. This steadfast dedication has never wavered and continues to be a driving force on behalf of children across the country today. For over 25 years, the American Legion Family has conducted a Kids Walk to benefit children in need. Our goal this year is to bring our family and local community families together in support of the children cared for at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Along with the general public, alumni of American Legion programs are encouraged to join in the walk. Legion program alumni are men and women, who have benefited from programs such as Boys State, Girls State, Legion Baseball, and youth groups sponsored by the Legion. All pledges and donations to the Kids Walk will benefit the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. The walk will also be an opportunity for Legion Program Alumni to catch up with old friends. All are welcome to attend.
