Thank you for considering joining us for our 7th Annual Run For Ali 5K Run/Walk. This event is being held in honor and remembrance of Alison Nicole Rackley and the many others who have lost their lives to substance use disorder. 

Alison was beautiful, brilliant, kind, fun-loving, and very loved. Despite having so much going for her, she was introduced to drugs, and it quickly took over her life. Alison died of an opioid overdose in April of 2017 at the age of 22, breaking the hearts of all who knew and loved her. During one Ali's last conversations with her mother, before she passed away, she told her to tell others to run from drugs. This 5K is our way of being able to pass along her message. Run from drugs. Don't mess around with them. Don't experiment. Just Run. Run for your life.

In response to Ali's passion to spread her message, we offer this opportunity to "Run For Ali" or run for your loved one with this 5K event.  Unfortunately, we have learned that we are not alone in our grief and despair. Many friends, family members, and even strangers have shared their stories with us about how the effects of substance use addiction have impacted them. We encourage you to reach out to your family & friends and form a team to come and walk or run with us in honor of or in support of your loved one.  

All Run For Ali 5K profits will benefit the Decatur Township Drug-Free Coalition, where Ali's Aunt is the Executive Director. This coalition is actively working to prevent and reduce drug use among youth and fighting this epidemic that is destroying many lives and tearing apart families. Alison had many connections to the Decatur Township community, and we know that she would be proud to be involved in this effort and pleased that we are committed to fighting this battle.  #runforali
