I am running in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in honor of my late father, Bruce Fenstermacher. He passed away from Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia/Cardiomyopathy. (ARVD/C) in 1999. ARVD/C is a genetic, progressive heart condition which causes abnormal heart rhythms. My family and I are raising funds to further research and awareness for the ARVD/C Program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
My dad ran almost every day and it is an honor to run in his memory!
