Trenton Double Cross 10K and Half Marathon: November 9, 2013 in Trenton NJ. The Trenton Double Cross 10K has selected Connor’s House as one of its Charity Partners, and we receive 20% of the entrance fee for every runner who signs up with the code CONNORSHOUSE. We’re starting off as a crew — both the 10K and the half-marathon — but we are happy to have walkers, joggers, runners and flyers (if you can figure out how).
ABOUT CONNOR’S CREWS
Connor’s Crew is a network of people in the NY-NJ-PA area who have decided to make a difference in the life of a child with complex health care needs and their family by participating in one or more small to medium fundraiser each year in support of Connor’s House.
A Connor’s Crew fundraiser could be from $100 to $100,000 based solely on your setting a goal. If could be a group of friends collecting coins one afternoon at the corner store, a comedy show at a local church, or a 5K fun run and race in the town square. Anything you enjoy doing can be a fundraiser!

Here are some examples of recent Connor’s Crew events.
On October 27, 2012 Connor’s Crew member The Evolution Gym held the inaugural Colors for Connor fundraiser and a “trunk and treat” at their gym in Bridgewater. More than a dozen young women dyed their hair different colors to raise over $4,500 for pediatric palliative care.
In September, October and November Connor’s House co-founder Scott Millard ran in the Atlantic City, Northern NJ and Philadelphia half marathons for Race for the House. He raised more than $7,000 and you can still make a donation on his Race for the House page.
If you are interested in hosting or participating in a Connor’s Crew event we’d love to have you.
