THE STORY:

2 years ago on Christmas Eve I got a call from a Hospital in Boston saying my Dad was in critical care. I was miles away in New Jersey and felt helpless. Talking to the nurse I came to know my Father had a heart episode while driving. He thought he was going out to a Christmas Eve party but unfortunately God had other plans. My Father was revived but unfortunately he went into a coma and soon after he passed away. I miss my father everyday and realize that life is precious. We never know when our last day will be. This sudden event that took my fathers life makes me have a great desire to run and raise money for the American Heart Association. I  decided to run the Atlantic City April Fools Half Marathon. Despite being from Boston, my Dad loved Bruce Springsteen and I thought a run down the JerseyShore would be a perfect spot to run this race. As Bruce says “Baby we were born to run.” Please help me support this amazing cause and each day let's all make better decisions in our lives to support our health! Thanks for your time!
