This Running Club is Much More than Running

 

The Boston Bulldogs Running Club is a true success story in every sense of the sentiment. Coach Mike Ferullo began this journey as an 8th-grade dropout, 15-year old drug user, hooked on heroin by age 17, in and out of detox, and sometimes jail until at age 22. From this experience, volunteering, and returning to finish his education, in 2015, he established the Boston Bulldogs Running Club for all those adversely affected by addiction.

What began as the story of one man’s family is today the story of many families working together toward a common goal – better treatments and a cure for a disease that threatens our most precious resource – our children. Cooley’s Anemia or Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder that reduces the production of functional hemoglobin (the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen).

Small & Gutsy Features Cycle of Lives

 Our focus is on Cycle of Lives, a nonprofit started in 2013, and its inspiring project that resulted in a recently published book that David authored as a result of his 5,000-mile solo 6-week bike journey across the country, from Los Angeles to Florida to New York, linking 15 people, all impacted by cancer in different ways: patient, survivor, loved-one, researcher or caregiver. His book focuses on the emotional experience of cancer for each of the folks he interviewed – his gift is to give the rest of us not just a bird’s eye view into his interviewees’ lives impacted by cancer but lessons in resilience, fortitude, and being present as reflections of our own emotional vulnerability.
