EVENT: Tough Mudder Philly 2017
Hello Family and Friends,
As most of you are aware in June of last year I unexpectedly lost my father. My heart is broken and my soul is torn... I cannot find any words to express my grief and sorrow. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about my Dad, how proud I am to be his son and to call him my father.
DAD: my mind still talks to you. my heart still looks for you. my soul knows you are at peace. I will continue to work every day to make you proud and honor your memory!
My father’s battle with Diabetes was a long, hard fight and he was amazingly strong every day, I truly admire his courage. About 4 weeks after his passing I participated in my first ever Tough Mudder event in Long Island NY, and then again in Oct. I ran my second race, both races were dedicated to my dad. I love the event, the team work and what it stands for! I found that I can continue to honor my father by racing in Tough Mudder events raising funds for the American Diabetes Association! So I have signed up for my third event in Philly on May 20th and I will again race in honor of my father! "4 DAD"
Every dollar I raise will make a difference in the lives of the millions of Americans who are still fighting Diabetes. By making a donation on my behalf and in memory of my Father, you will be helping the American Diabetes Foundation provide critical funding for medical research, public education and patient support services.
So please strongly consider supporting me in my Tough Mudder event and helping me support the American Diabetes Association in honor of my Father!

The American Diabetes Association and Tough Mudder Join Forces!
Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile military style obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. We like to think of it as good dirty fun! This is not a timed race but an exhilarating, yet safe, world-class event you won't find anywhere else. Challenge yourself while raising money for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and community programs.
