AdvertisementRun/Walk To Save a Life is in honor of Christopher Andreozzi who passed away
suddenly from sudden cardiac death caused by an arrhythmia on May 23, 2023.
Christopher (Chris) was a lifelong resident of Hamden who graduated from Hamden High, Trinity College and Yale University. Chris was a devoted psychiatric APRN at Yale New Haven Hospital and Turnbridge. He was passionate about the care of his patients and believed that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.
Chris was an avid supporter of the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline as their mission mirrored his philosophy on the care of the person with mental illness therefore half of the proceeds from the race will be donated to this organization.
The rest of the proceeds will be donated to the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS) to advance research, medical education and to ultimately prevent these avoidable young deaths from cardiac arrhythmias.
At the race,health care workers will be on site to educate you on how to perform CPR and use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). CPR and early defibrillation saves lives!
