If you would like to be a race sponsor or donate to the Cipriano family online, please visit our Sponsor Tab. If you wish to volunteer, we would love to have you. See the Volunteer Tab above.
Rather than provide age group awards, we donate every dollar to the Cipriano Children's Trust, after costs. Results from previous years are posted in the Results Tab.
Our 2022 event raised over $41,000 for the Cipriano family and our 2021 event raised over $57,000. They truly appreciate your continued support and this event is among highlights of their year.
Here is a April 2022 statement from the Cipriano family:
"Sal is still having seizures that set back his ongoing treatment. His is at Wayne State University learning to use new technology to talk with an iPad, working out at Barwis for strength/balance and works with a functional neurologist for balance and speech. He will be on the Miracle Baseball League in June and is planning on running the race with his family.
Tanner is back in sunny California. Isabella is finishing her Freshman year at Notre Dame, studying pre-med. We just found out she has a torn ACL and MCL on her right knee from playing softball at Notre Dame.
Rose is Sal's major caregiver and finds some time to sprinkle in walking, swimming, and tennis.
Our family is blessed, we still face heavy financial burdens for Sal's medical treatment that is not covered by insurance including his ongoing rehabilitation, day-to-day homecare providers (he needs a caregiver with him at all times due to the seizures), and physical training. We are grateful for your continued support and donations.
We are grateful to be here with all of you and we look forward to seeing all of your photos and social media posts with our smiling faces and stretched hamstrings at this year's Cipriano Classic! Thanks again for all of your love and prayers! God bless and JKLP!"
