Annual Applefest 5k Charity Run

by Comment 0

Glastonbury, CT.     For the 8th year in a row, American Integrity Restoration's Team Hot AIR is "Running for a Reason."  Each year while supporting the CT River Valley Chamber of Commerce at the Applefest 5K, AIR selects a family within the surrounding community who is dealing with health issue or financial crisis. AIR donates $10 per runner on Team Hot AIR and collect donations for our sponsored family. After an amazing turnout last year of 300 runners, this year we are running in honor of Kyle Ashley. Kyle is a second grade student from Colchester, bravely battling osteosarcoma, a form of cancer.

Kyle was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in November of 2017, and immediately started chemotherapy, followed by an above the knee amputation on March 1, 2018.  After completing chemo at the end of July, Kyle and his family were making plans for the start of his 2nd grade year and for Mom, Marci, to go back to work as a teacher in Hartford Public Schools. However, after his routine scans, the doctors discovered the spread of cancer in his lungs.  He has just begun a more intense chemo regimen and will also be undergoing lung surgeries to remove the nodules. We are hoping that this run lets him know that there are people who are cheering him on! 

We feel that when a family is dealing with a debilitating and/or possibly terminal diagnosis their lives should not also be shattered financially. Every little bit counts!

Please consider joining Team Hot AIR on Sunday October 14, 2018 to help ease a financial burden and also raise Kyle and his family's spirits by running/walking in Kyle's honor.
