“Last year I met Len Forkas, whose passion and commitment to help sick children inspired me to run. It turns out I'm pretty fast for my size.”- Matteo

Matteo met with Chicago Cubs baseball player Anthony Rizzo On July 19th. Anthony was 18 and just drafted and he was diagnosed with cancer. Now he's a 3 time All Star and Superhero and knows personally what kids go through fighting cancer. Matteo gave Mr. Rizzo a hand written letter that asked him for a “moonshot” for kids with cancer and not only did Anthony give him one but he got a Grand Slam!
