Father Dennis Colamarino was a very special person in my life who lost his two year battle with ALS March 28, 2015. He was not only the priest that performed Tara and my wedding vows, but more importantly he was a very dear and inspiring friend.
Below you will find a link on his passing that a local news station aired on Monday:
The Sunday before his death, Tara and I had lunch with him and his family following mass. Before lunch I asked him for what ended up being his final favor to me, his permission to run the Pittsburgh Marathon and raise money in his honor. It was a very emotional moment for both him and I, and I was honored to receive his blessing and support.
If you would like to support me in running the Pittsburgh Marathon and join the effort to fight ALS please donate here. Your donation will help fund the efforts of the ALS Association’s Western Pennsylvania Chapter.
