The 15th Annual Walk for Independence–Save the Date–Sunday, April 25th-Saturday, May 1st!

Honoring The DeBartolomeo and Lucherini Families for their 60 plus years of supporting ARI!

The 15th Annual Walk for Independence will take place beginning on Sunday, April 25th with opening ceremonies taking place virtually, with in-person attendance by invitation only at 11:00am. All festivities on April 25th will be broadcasted online at and via Facebook Live.  The virtual event will include live and taped feed of festivities throughout the week beginning on Sunday April 25th beginning at 11:00am.  If you cannot make the live event you can still walk in support of ARI from April 25th to May 1st and send us your photos and videos by posting on our FACEBOOK page.
