_ The 5th Annual Jason Albarelli Memorial Fundraiser:
The 5th Annual Jason Albarelli Memorial 3 mile Fundraiser is back for another live event! This years' event will be on September 9th, with hopes of cooler running conditions.
Jason was funny, handsome, outgoing, compassionate, and he had an infectious smile. He would make you feel like you mattered. He appeared confident but underneath he struggled to mask his insecurities that came from his addiction. He tried tirelessly to get help and support for his addiction by seeking new treatments, and always found strength and energy to carry him through for a short while. These treatment options were hard to find and not easily accessible for those who are seeking help.
Our annual event was founded to remember Jason and bring awareness to the devastation that addiction causes families. Our goal is to support Shatterproof’s mission of reversing the addiction crisis in the U.S. Shatterproof is a non-profit organization that uses evidence based research to advocate for policy changes at both the state and federal level. The race allows us to create a legacy for Jason and others who we have lost to addiction, while supporting change for the future. Please encourage your friends and family to join us for what promises to be a meaningful way to remember Jason and bring together old and new friends.
Our live event will feature a computer chip-timed 3-mile course and an untimed one-mile walk option. As of our launch date, we will follow all CT guidelines for outdoor events which could change by the day of the event. Updates will be posted on this site and sent to all pre-registered entrants.
