2019 Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium

For My Dad

On Sunday April 15th, in Memory of MY DAD, Joseph Truscello (Joe T), whose life was cut short by cancer and lived a life well lived that included his devotion to his New York Yankees, we will participate in the 10th annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium, a unique fundraising run-walk that uses the Stadium as its course. We'll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take our own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field.

My wife Judy and myself will WALK the 5K so we can enjoy the views of the stadium of the team my Dad so loved.  We will also walk so we can talk to any and all family and friends who wish to walk with us in honor of My Dad and all Dads everywhere.

"For My Dad" Team is now amazingly up to 40 friends and family of all ages to mark this special day. We of course will plan a post-walk celebration as well.  You may choose to run the 5K if you wish. All walkers/runners receive a t-shirt and medal. 

Join Our Team:  "For My Dad" and join us.  Please try to sign up by April 4th!  If you can't join us please make a donation if you wish. 

MET Fans are welcomed as my Dad spent a lot of time "talking" with you all. 

100% of the money we raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.

Please make a donation that supports our run/walk.

You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received!

Thank you for your support.
