2023 Run Walk & Roll Highlights

Presenting Charity

Together, We Can Do More!

The Big Beautiful Life Family provides comfort, community and resources to children in chronic medical crisis in memory of everyone's child, Addi 15A1. Addi had an Indomitable Spirit and Relentlessly lived a Big Beautiful Life filled with joy despite her cruel, progressive & complex mystery disease. She never acknowledged her life was hard. Not Once. She never met a stranger and,  living more life in 12 short years than most people live in a longer lifetime, she brought people together and inspired them to believe in possibilities. Now that her medical battle is done and she is free of pain, she leaves everyone her life has touched committed to continuing her important work.

Featured Partner


Addi 15A1 found her purpose in fire service and is a beloved Lifetime Member  and Honorary Chief of the Essex Fire Department Family. She tracked all calls and was happiest when she was near “my firefighters” or heard that they were safe back in quarters. Just like Addi, Essex Fire's Addi’s Engine (Engine 2) is all wheel drive and takes anything life has to throw at it. Addi’s Engine symbolizes courage, devotion and resilience and reminds people to take care of each other. It will keep our community and Addi’s fire brothers & sisters safe for years to come.

The Essex Fire Department is a paid on-call volunteer fire department providing fire protection and emergency medical first response services.
