NEVER QUIT® are two very powerful words which convey a powerful message. You can live by the words to NEVER QUIT®, alone, with a team, company, club or organization.
We must NEVER QUIT® in all good endeavors, to give your all, no matter how difficult the circumstances, to love others before self and put others first, willing to even give our own life to save the life of someone else.
You will be with thousands of others who come to celebrate these same words. At a NEVER QUIT® event or run, you can join a team, sign up as a group or company or just sign up as an individual. You know that you will be with others who will NEVER QUIT® and who love the same meaning. You will be surrounded by thousands of others who have adopted this NEVER QUIT® resiliency, fit to fight message.
This is why at any NEVER QUIT® event, we all take the Constitutional oath together, led by Law Enforcement, U.S. Military and Fire Fighters who took this same oath. Instead of a person singing the National Anthem at us, at NEVER QUIT®, together as a group we all sing together, we all celebrate those who defend our liberties or gave the ultimate sacrifice and celebrate this wonderful country we live in.
Capt. Gerard Petroni was an active, healthy family man of enduring faith, remarkable athletic abilities, strong physique & a loving heart. When Gerard suffered a massive stroke & brain bleed on Thanksgiving 2006, it shook all who knew this vibrant man. Uncontrolled high blood pressure was the cause & if this could happen to him, it could happen to anyone! Six months later, he was still unable to walk, eat, or speak. His family handed him a Sharpie & said, “Dad, if you could write just one thing on this paper, what would you write?” With a hard pressed hand he scratched out NEVER QUIT. Gerard’s optimistic NEVER QUIT® attitude, love & care of his family, friends & medical team helped him survive & improve significantly. After 3 wonderful “extra” years of life, Gerard suffered another stroke & moved Home to his Heavenly Father December. 31, 2009.
