100 Mile for Hope

Watching his grandmother sliding away was devastating for Jay Asparro and his family.
Jay ran to pray, to think, to clear his mind, and to find his own unique way of helping.
Then he made the commitment to help families who have a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s.

November 2016 Jay ran 30 miles a day for 3 days, totaling 90 miles to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s. Every mile he contributed to another family and he raised $38,000 for the Long Island Alzheimers Foundation.

It was just the beginning. In November 2017 he ran 75 miles over 2 days to commemorate what would’ve been his grandparents’ 75th wedding anniversary. Halfway 2018 Jay had already raised another $50,000 for the Long Island Alzheimers Foundation.

He joined Lake Placid IronMan 140.6 on July 22, 2018 for all those caregivers who can’t quit and keep pushing forward. He got sick halfway through the swim. But he didn’t give up. On September 9 he picked up where he had to stop 6 weeks before and that day he finished his own Lake Placid IronMan 70.3.

Since Jay began his fundraising journey with the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF) four years ago, he has raised over $70,000. In 2019 Jay hopes to reach a goal of $100,000!

On Saturday, November 2nd Jay will embark on his 100 Mile For Hope run, from Montauk to Plainview, in 1 day, and once again persevere to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and LIAF’s programs.
Jay is running for his beloved grandmother who passed away this year, as well as all of the other families impacted by Alzheimer’s.
