THE STORY:

In 2012 a group of us went up to Vermont to participate in a Tough Mudder. Although we all knew the race would be difficult we all got a little more than what we bargained for. It wasn't the hills, the ice water or any of the other obstacles we faced that stood out the most, it was the camaraderie. Helping each other through the obstacles, encouraging each other and a determination for all to finish was something all of us will never forget. On mile 5 of the 10+ mile race Frankie started to cramp up and fell to the ground. To this point Frankie was in the front group with a few of us and elated that he was doing so well. Disappointed, he looked up at us and told us to go ahead without him. We told him that wasn't going to happen, that we would finish together. Needless to say we did finish, together. Four years later we're proud to make this run with our fallen Brother once more. All of us together just the way he would have wanted. Frankie personified everything right about his profession. Frankie loved his family both home and at work with a giving of time and effort rarely matched. He gave so much to help others and encouraged others to do the same. Now is the time for us to come together and support Frank's family because we know he would be at the forefront to support ours. This June 18th we will tackle the Tough Mudder and Mt. Snow once again in honor of our brother Frank. We will also raise as many donations as we can to support Frank's family. We love you Frank! You'll always be with us
