In 2013 and 2014, Mike Bruno ran marathons blindfolded to honor his daughter, who has been blind since birth.
On Sunday, Cassie took the tether as the pair crossed the finish line at the Kids of Steel Children’s Marathon in Pittsburgh.
It was a change from 2016, when he pushed her in a stroller for the full 26.2 miles.
“Although it was one of the most physically taxing things I’ve ever done, it was one of the most amazing, gratifying things to share that experience with her,” Bruno said.
