Ridgeites race to the finish for Pietro’s Fight

Runners, young and old, hit the pavement on Saturday, September 19 at the Third Annual Pietro’s Fight to the Finish Line – a 5k benefiting Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) research via Bay Ridge-based organization Pietro’s Fight.

“It was a beautiful day,” said Ridgeite Dayna Scarso, co-founder of Pietro’s Fight and loving mother to Pietro, a first-grader who was diagnosed with DMD – a recessive X-lined form of muscular dystrophy, affecting around one in 3,600 boys – at just three years old.
