Event Information
Tarentino Strong 5k Run/Walk 2020
100% of all money raised in this event raised will go to the Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr. Charitable Fund. This event is a family friendly way to honor all that Officer Tarentino continues to stand for along with the great work the charitable fund continues to do. Officer Tarentino was a respected, well loved police officer who served with distinction in both the towns of Leicester and Auburn. He also was a true family man who loved spending time with his family. The mission of the Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr. Charitable Fund is to provide educational scholarships and to help people who have experienced catastrophic circumstances (illness, serious injury, death of a loved one, etc.) by providing financial support and/or donating items that can assist in their recovery. For example, the charity has worked with COPS for Kids with Cancer, donated to families of fallen or injured first responders and provided scholarships to high school students in three communities throughout Massachusetts.
