Learn More About Our Local Community

Quinnipiac’s Big Event

Quinnipiac’s Big Event was founded in 2010. The annual day of service encourages thousands of students and alumni to complete thousands of hours of work to benefit their communities each year. The event began nearly 4 decades ago at Texas A&M University.


QTHON is a year-long fundraising enterprise led by Quinnipiac students, which culminates in a 10-hour dance marathon to raise funds and awareness in support of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Over the past 8 years, the Bobcat community has raised more than $1 million to support patients and their families.
