UNSUNG HERO HONOREE

Jay Asparro

Jay has transformed his love for his grandmother, Ann Asparro, and passion for running into his blueprint for making a difference - one mile, one person, one family at a time. Watching his grandmother slowly slip away while living with Alzheimer’s was devastating. Today, Jay is committed to making a difference by raising awareness and helping other impacted families navigate their way through the disease.


Through hard work and perseverance, over the last five years, Jay has raised over $92,000 for the LIAD Center. Committed to reaching his goal, Jay will be running 50 miles at his 5th Annual Ann Asparro Run on November 8th. You can support Jay by attending our comedy event and joining him on the sideline the day of to cheer him on!
