15th Annual Walk for Independence

This year's event will take place VIRTUALLY with limited LIVE attendance due to COVID!


Honoring the DeBartolomeo and Lucherini Families and the Memory of Frank Lucherini, for their 60+ years of support!


Welcome to the 15th Annual Walk for Independence fundraising site!  Although we will not have our usual fully live WALK event, we hope to have limited live attendance (at a location to be determined) on April 25th starting at 10am, with live and taped feeds of the festivities.  The Walk will still allow for virtual participation all week long, allowing everyone to participate in the Walk any time between Sunday, April 25th and Saturday, May 1st! 



WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER!  Please register, create a fundraising page, and raise support for ARI's vital mission.  T-shirts will be available for you to wear when walking around your own neighborhood or the location of your choice!  We will have updated information on the Walk festivities and how to pick up your T-shirts soon.


Thank you for your support and participation.  Spread the word that, YOUR HELP, will allow ARI to continue providing necessary services to people with developmental disabilities throughout the pandemic.  Your support will enable us to enrich their lives by helping them to achieve their fullest potential.


From this site you can register, become a sponsor, form a team, join a team, and begin raising money in support of ARI.  Whether you raise $5 or $2,500+ you will be helping ARI and the over 100 people we support.  Once you have started a fundraising page or team, we ask that you share the page with your friends, family and others.  If you need assistance or need more information, please contact Gerard Gasparino at or call (203) 324-9258 ext. 3023.
