Description

Thank you for considering joining us for the Inaugural Run for Ali 5K Run/Walk. This event is being held in honor and remembrance of Alison Nicole Rackley Collins. Alison was beautiful, brilliant, kind, fun-loving and very loved. Despite having so much going for her, she was introduced to heroin and it quickly took over her life. Alison died of an opiod overdose in April of 2017 at the age of 22, breaking the hearts of those who loved and knew her. During her attempt to overcome this addiction, she was asked what advice she would give to someone who was contemplating experimenting with drugs, and she adamantly replied, "Run!"

We are responding to her passion by offering this opportunity to run for Ali. 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 they have been impacted by the effects of drug addiction. All profits from the 2017 Run for Ali 5K will benefit the Decatur Township Drug Free Coalition. This coalition is actively working in the Decatur Township community to help fight the drug epidemic that is destroying many lives and tearing apart families. Alison has many connections to the Decatur Township community and we know she would be proud to be involved in this effort, and pleased that we are committed to fighting this battle.
