The Story

Runnin for Rocco began in 2009 as a way to pay tribute to Teresa Clark Di Pietro who passed away from an amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) during the birth of her son, Rocco. Wanting to do something to honor her and do something she loved, her husband, Dave, and some of her closest friends created Runnin 4 Rocco. Knowing Teresa’s heart, they knew she would want the financial benefit to go to a charity that she would have supported if given the opportunity. Dave and her friends decided the funds would benefit the AFE Foundation and would help support their efforts in raising awareness and funding research into the rare disorder that took her life.
