Tarentino Strong Road Race
All monies raised will go to the Ronald Tarentino Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund. We have chosen to have a family friendly fun run as a way to honor all that Officer Tarentino stood for in Leicester and in Auburn. Officer Tarentino was a respected, well loved police officer who served with distinction in both towns. He also was a true family man who loved spending time with his family. We hope this run will bring both communities and everyone involved closer and honor Officer Tarentino and all of the men and women in blue who continue to work to protect and serve for us.
