Jason Albarelli Memorial 5k run, 1K walk and Fundraiser

Monday June 8th, 2020

Bridgeport, CT

Official Website


On Friday June 7, 2019, we invite you to join us in Black Rock, CT for the 2nd Annual Jason Albarelli Memorial 5K.  Participants are able to run or walk the 5K, or walk a 1K course, which loops around Jason's favorite Black Rock spots.

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 vision of ending the stigma around addiction and creating a community for those who have been impacted. 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.


*We would also like to encourage participants to share photos of loved ones they have lost to addiction by emailing them to us via: [email protected] 


Event Proceeds

All proceeds from the event will be donated to ShatterProof – a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families.
