About this event
Please join us in the first Gianna Cirella Memorial 5k Walk/Run to honor the life of Gianna Cirella who passed away suddenly at the age of 16 after a brief bout with pneumonia and sepsis. Gianna was a junior at Toll Gate High School in Warwick, a goalie on the soccer team and a bright student who had already set her eyes on attending college and making a difference in the world, studying physical therapy/sports medicine. 
A memorial fund has been established in Gianna's name to provide assistance for sepsis research, to children and their families who have been affected by sepsis as well as providing scholarship money for players of the sport she loved.
