Register for the 9th Annual HAVEN Free Clinic 5K on October 8

September 14, 2023

HAVEN Free Clinic's ninth annual ¡ANDA! 5K fundraiser is back in person this year on Sunday, Oct. 8!

The student-run HAVEN Free Clinic, associated with Yale School of Medicine, provides primary care services to uninsured patients in Greater New Haven. This fundraiser contributes up to 70% of HAVEN’s total annual budget, and allows us to provide the high-quality, equitable services our patients need every week.

We encourage you to sign up to run, walk, donate, or sponsor a friend to help us reach our fundraising goal of $15,000. You can register for the 5K, learn more about the event, and help fundraise at

One hundred percent of the proceeds of the fundraiser go directly to patient care, including reproductive health services, tuberculosis treatment, behavioral health sessions (in partnership with Connecticut Mental Health Center’s Hispanic Clinic), and specialty care, among many other services. Along with clinical care, student volunteers connect patients to medical debt relief; emergency cash assistance for rent, utilities, and food; and legal assistance through our medical-legal partnership.

Again, you can register for the 5K or create a personal/team fundraising page at
