Jay has transformed his love for his grandmother, Ann Asparro, and passion for running into his blueprint for making a difference - one mile, one person, one family at a time. Watching his grandmother slowly slip away while living with Alzheimer’s was devastating. In addition to that, seeing his family members physically and emotionally give of themselves to care for her on a daily basis created feelings of frustration and helplessness. Today, Jay is committed to making a difference by raising awareness and helping other impacted families navigate their way through the disease. Through hard work and perseverance, over the last four years, Jay has raised over $96,000 for the Long Island Alzheimer's & Dementia Center. On November 8th, 2020, Jay ran again for caregivers and those diagnosed, completing 50 miles to raise a total of $100,000. Join Jay in helping caregivers take a step forward by making a donation in honor of the 2020 Ann Asparro Run - every dollar raised is donated directly to the LIAD Center's day programs and services.
