Lace Up, Give Back
Thinking about running on Team CEF at this year’s Hartford Marathon on October 12? Sign up by September 15 to save $5 on race entry, and the Hartford Marathon Foundation will donate $5 to fundraising efforts!
CEF, the Connecticut Education Foundation, CEA’s charitable arm, raises money to provide relief for teachers and students facing extraordinary or catastrophic personal circumstances; basic necessities for underprivileged children; and scholarships for young people entering the teaching profession.
This is CEF’s sixth year as an official charity of the Eversource Hartford Marathon, and we are looking to grow our team of volunteers as well as our participants in the various races, including the marathon, half-marathon, and 5K.
Once you’re signed up for the race, email CEA Vice President and CEF President Tom Nicholas to confirm you’re an official team member, then sign up on our crowdrise page and reach out to friends, family, and colleagues and ask for their support.
“Every donation is greatly appreciated and goes a long way toward helping students and teachers,” says Nicholas.

Anyone looking to make donations to CEF can mail checks to CEF at 21 Oak Street, Suite 500, Hartford, CT 06106.
