On April 28, 2020 our family's greatest hero left this Earth - Dan, Dad, Pop, and Gafi - the names were interchangeable but the man was one of a kind. He loved to drink manhattans, watch the Buffalo Bills and Notre Dame football, he played golf and cribbage, and loved gadgets and technology. What he didn't do and wished he had, was take care of his physical health better. He was diagnosed with Stage II Diabetes and maintained his health according to his own rules - live a good life and God will take care of the rest.
In memory of Daniel, our family is encouraging everyone to do what he would have wanted, to simply walk in the outdoors and enjoy the knowing of being able to walk without pain. This is the first annual walk/run but certainly won't be the last. We hope you join us and look forward to all of your wonderful, fun, crazy, exciting race photos by yourself, with family or friends! Please upload them to our race FB page where we will keep everyone informed of race entry status and fundraising goals.
REGISTER NOW - RUN LATER on Nov 14, 2020 Global Diabetes Awareness Day
Anyone that lets us know they are walking/running in memory of someone who passed away from diabetes or is participating in support of someone like our father, Daniel, who was a long-time sufferer of it's effects, we will create individual FB posts in honor of your Loved One as a special tribute and thank you.

If you are a runner - keep it going and pass on your love for it
