‘My Dad Would Be Really Happy’: Running The Boston Marathon To Heal From Father’s Sudden Death

BOSTON (CBS) – For many who run the Boston Marathon, the reasons behind their run are very personal. That’s true for 21-year-old Eddie Fettuccia; he has never been a runner – until very recently.

“I found out that really helped me deal with the pain and the loss of my dad,” Eddie shared. In 2019, Eddie’s father, Patrick, collapsed at his younger brother’s hockey game. He unknowingly had a brain aneurysm and it ruptured. He died just three days before Christmas.
