Congratulations to all the participants of the 2017 New York City Triathlon on July 16, 2017! Athletes came together to conquer Manhattan but Team Musmanno participated to help raise money and awareness for a cause close to their heart.
Steve Musmanno dove (literally and figuratively) back into racing this Sunday for Harboring Hearts after retiring 6 years ago from the racing arena. He has done countless races for the American Heart Association from 2008 to 2010! He was inspired to carry this torch because of the heart journey of his wife, Robin, who was born with congenital heart disease. Through many extensive heart procedures, Robin perseveres! Having undergone numerous heart procedures, Steve and Robin both know that this battle comes with costs of time, tears and money. They also understand that many who are in this battle may not have the latter, money. Now as parents, Steve and Robin wants to share with their daughter, Ashley, their fervor of supporting other heart warriors.
Many of the families Harboring Hearts support are in need of help to keep their housing, pay their medical bills, expenses, etc. Especially undergoing expensive life saving hospital procedures increases day to day expenses that leave individuals swamped with financial hardships. Together with support from family and friends, Team Musmanno raised $3,779!
CONGRATULATIONS STEVE, ROBIN and ASHLEY! Your efforts go a long way to provide for much needed support, comfort and respite for those undergoing cardiac surgery! From Harboring Hearts, we would like to thank you for supporting us and for your drive to fight towards this cause.
