The 20th annual Run for Joe will be held Sunday at Canterbury School in New Milford.  The rain-or-shine event will raise funds for the Giuseppe Leto Scholarship Fund at the school. U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Leto, who was a member of Canterbury's class of 1997, died while on a conditioning hike at Camp Lejeune in 1999.  After going through boot camp on Paris Island, he reported to Camp Lejeune for 16 weeks of training.  The 21-year-old died during his third week in North Carolina.  Registration will run from 12:30 to 1pm, with the walk/run to start at 1:30pm.  Participants may choose between a one-mile fun run or a 5K run/walk.  A luncheon will follow.  The event has raised more than $200,000 in support of the memorial scholarship fund, which provides financial assistance to a New Milford-area day student attending Canterbury School each year.  The scholarship and this event were started by his mother, Mimi Leto.
