CohnReznick Managing Partner New England Frank Longobardi
and his daughter Kristen Longobardi recently ran side-by-side in
support of the Arthritis Foundation of New England at the New Bal-
ance Falmouth Road Race on August 11.
Frank became part of the Arthritis Foundation community 12 years
ago. During more than a decade of involvement, he has chaired the
Regional Board of Directors and is currently serving on the National
Board of Directors. Kristen became involved because she wanted to
support her father's commitment to helping people with arthritis.
At a recent National Arthritis Foundation Board of Directors meeting,
Frank challenged members of the board to make donations, and they
agreed, if he agreed to run the race alongside his daughter.
Together, the father-daughter team has raised a total of $25,000 dol-
lars to help the Arthritis Foundation.
Reynolds & Rowella donated a Day of Car-
ing in August when 38 of the firm's staff and
partners volunteered at Tarrywile Park, a
722-acre estate in Danbury. The firm's efforts
represented almost 300 hours of work.
Volunteers trimmed foliage along 2.5 miles
of hiking trails, spread three truckloads of
new gravel along pathways in the Children's
Garden, and tackled garden weeding and
clean-up around the gazebo. The firm also
donated a park bench of recycled material to
be placed in the gazebo.
"It is amazing what 38 people can do during
the course of one day," said Tarrywile Park's
Executive Director Becky Burr-Petro.
Reynolds & Rowella began its Day of Caring
in 2010 and has volunteered services on be-
half of the Danbury Women's Shelter, Amos
House, and WeCAHR (Western Connecticut
Association for Human Rights).
