I Run for Those Who Cannot...

Five months ago - my brother & sister came to find me to tell me the news that I dreaded hearing for 27 years. As my brother told me, he said “you are the most like him, never forget that.” In that moment I made a promise to myself & my family to continue to be like my Dad - to live like him, to accomplish his unfinished goals, to be committed to those who need us the most, and to never ever let his legacy of loving life be forgotten.

In order to continue to spread his spirit - I will be running the Philly Love Half Marathon on March 27th, just a few days after what would have been my Dad’s 72nd birthday. In an effort to accomplish my Dad’s unfinished goals - I will be raising money for Legacy of Hope - an organization that provides resources, housing, funds, and support to the families of those battling cancer. A fight near and dear to my Dad’s heart. 

Thanks in advance to those running beside me, those cheering at the finish line, and those willing to donate - I am eternally grateful for every one of you & I know my Dad is too!

After all, there is no better compliment than to be told I am just like my Dad! 

ABOUT Love Run - Philly Runs Free 2022


Legacy of Hope, like most other organizations, has been impacted by the current events, economic downturn, and event cancellations, yet Legacy of Hope refuses to scale back its emergency patient support operations because a resulting loss of life will never be an option.

Over the next few months, we will train, have fun doing what we love, bring our city together, and make some incredible memories along the way. In doing so we’ve been given an awesome opportunity to ensure no family in Philadelphia goes hungry because a loved one is fighting cancer, creating a legacy which will outlive all of us. Our goal for the Love Run 2022 (Philly Runs Free campaign) is $250,000. This will ensure that no family living in Philadelphia goes hungry or loses their home because a loved one has cancer. No elderly parent, or spouse, or child, or cancer patient will have to wonder where their next meal will come from, or will they will live.
