The Joe Kelly Memorial Road Race is held in memory of Joseph Kelly who courageously battled brain cancer for two years. While Joe was only 14 when he passed away, his goodness and positive attitude for life impacted all of those who knew him. He was thoughtful, kind, generous and truly cared for others. Joe was passionate about sports – whether he was playing football, baseball or basketball, he was competitive but mostly he just loved being part of a team.
Proceeds from this event will be directed to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for the purpose of providing assistance and services for families with children undergoing treatment in the Oncology Department.
