Join us in-person for the 10th Annual Andrea Rose Teodosio Memorial 5k Run/ 1 mile walk on Saturday, Oct 2, 2021 or participate in the virtual walk/run from today through Saturday, Oct. 2. Listed in Akron Life Magazine as one of the best 5K events in the Akron area, this run or walk has been built on the tradition of community support.   The race memorializes the life of Andrea Rose Teodosio who was a bright, energetic and motivated young woman of twenty-two when her life was lost in a skiing accident at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia.  For the past ten years we have honored the spirit of Andrea’s love of life through the efforts of The Andrea Rose Teodosio Foundation, which focuses on helping those most in need in our community.

Running this mostly flat course through Downtown Akron allows participants to enjoy the route along Main Street to the Lock 3 Towpath.  Normally held in July each year, this year the run was moved to October and will run in conjunction with the Akron Beer Festival. 

For our runners who prefer to run on their own, we will again offer the option to run the event virtually- but we hope to see you at Lock 3 again this year in person to celebrate the life of Andrea.  Virtual Runners can register anytime between now and October 2 and run at their leisure. 

 If you would like to donate to the Foundation by mail rather than online, please address your donation to The Andrea Rose Teodosio Foundation, PO Box 109, Munroe Falls, Ohio 44262.

Hope to see you on October 2!  Thank you for your support.
