Newport Rhode Race Half-Marathon Fundraiser by Paige Parisi

Hi! I’m Paige Parisi. I am from Darien, CT, and a high school senior at Greens Farms Academy in Westport, Connecticut. 

I am excited to be running in the Newport Rhode Race Half-Marathon on April 15th on behalf of the Regional Hospice, Danbury, CT.

I have been involved with the Regional Hospice since my sophomore year when I organized a team of students to run in the Regional Hospice’s Color Fest to support the construction of their children’s hospice. I wanted to help out more, so I started to volunteer on-site at the hospice, which I have continued throughout high school. I love working with patients and finding ways to support this wonderful cause. 

This spring, as I finish my senior year of high school, I will combine my love for running and the Regional Hospice by running a half-marathon! Please donate to support my run – all donations will directly support the Regional Hospice’s construction of their new pediatric hospice.
