Join the FDNY Deputy Chief Mike Fahy 2nd Annual Fun Run! Come out and celebrate the life of a good man, Mike Fahy, an A-OLF parishioner who gave his life while protecting the citizens of NYC. His firehouse started a memorial run in his honor last year. This year the run will take place on May 24th, 2018 in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. Last year’s rain didn’t stop hundreds of parishioners and FDNY from coming out, so don’t let anything stop you!
