About the Deary Memorial Race, Walk & Ride

The Deary Memorial Road Race & Walk began in 1989, evoling into a community tradition each August. In 2009, cycling "Ride" categories were added and the event was renamed the Day Kimball Healthcare Deary Memorial Race, Walk & Ride. Over the years, the event has raised more than $1,117,000 and all the money remains local. It provides preventive services and cancer treatment such as mammograms, colonoscopies, diagnostics, medication and surgical procedures for local patients needing financial assistance in the local community. The fundraiser also supports the Tom C. Deary Jr. Scholarship awarded to students pursuing a career in radiology.

Additional fundraising activities to support the Deary Memorial Race, Walk & Ride begin prior to the event with a Spring Gala, Wine Tasting and Guest Bartender Night.

Throughout the summer months, the Northeast Connecticut community comes together to remember, celebrate and honor those who have battled cancer. It is through the support of many that the Day Kimball Healthcare Deary Memorial Cancer Fund is able to change lives.
