Sara Krolikowski Memorial Race Results

Advocacy Unlimited held their annual 5K race on August 26 at Walnut Hill Park in New Britain. This race is held in memory of Sara Krolikowski, a tireless advocate for those suffering from mental illness and substance abuse whose accidental death was felt throughout the community she served. A dozen or so of her family joined runners and walkers to support this great event.


As in 2016, Mario Vazquez from New Britain was the winner in 16:45, knocking a minute off of last year’s winning time. Also like 2016, Newington’s Michael Vesci was a close second. Jackie Birge from Unionville was the first female finisher and 6th overall in 22:03. She was followed by Lori Coviello of Terryville in 24:02.


A post race party followed with awards, food and live music  provided by Possm. Next year’s event is now being planned.
