We would like to thank everyone for always supporting our family and Finish for a Guinness 5K throughout the years. It is with great regret that we will be taking a hiatus in 2020. Due to the current economic climate and unknown social restrictions, we do not feel we can plan and execute our race to a level everyone has come to expect.
Thank you to all our sponsors and participants over the years. We will start prepping for 2021 and promise to make it the best race yet!
IN HISTORICAL DOWNTOWN WARREN, RI
RAISING AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR ALS
HISTORY OF THIS EVENT
This charitable event is being held to raise awareness and funds for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. In the winter of 2008 Christopher Stone was diagnosed with ALS at the young age of thirty-four. As a result, the Christopher Stone Fund was established to help support the Stone family as they went through this challenging time. Sadly, Chris lost his fight in the summer of 2009, less than a year after being diagnosed. However, the Christopher Stone Fund continues to actively raise funds for local ALS chapters and families as well as other charitable causes.
This horrific disease affects over 30,000 people just in the USA. Caring for individuals with ALS is often expensive and emotionally straining. We hope this race will help provide ALS victims, families, and caretakers with the most fulfilling quality of life during this most trying time.
We thank you in advance for the opportunity to speak and connect with you and others in the community to make this event a continued success!
