100% of race proceeds go to supporting emerging adult programming for Join Rise Be through Advocacy Unlimited, Inc. Join Rise Be is a peer-run initiative dedicated to making the opportunity of recovery available to every young person across the state of Connecticut. We do so by sharing our experiences to influence change at the local, regional, and state levels. We also connect with our peers and community partners to reduce discrimination against young people. In addition, we cultivate the belief that recovery is possible and we all have the capacity to achieve success.


Sara was an amazing person, a humble servant, a beautiful spirit, a loving friend. She was someone who always stood with a smile on her face despite what went on around her, and who was admired by many. Sara never hesitated to lend a hand in anything she could, and was always involved in a variety of things that would allow her to give back others. She always lit up a room with her presence, and where Sara was, that is definitely where everyone wanted to be. Her laugh was contagious, her motivation and drive to succeed unstoppable. She was a softball player beyond comparison, and her encouragement of others both on and off the field is missed dearly by everyone who ever got a chance to meet her.
