Our Patron, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

"THE HIGHER WE GO, THE BETTER WE SHALL HEAR THE VOICE OF CHRIST."
~Pier Giorgio Frassati

These words of Blessed Pier Giorgio inspire our athletes to strive for greatness as a means to glorify God.

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, the patron saint of our running club, was a holy outdoorsman known for both his saintliness and his athleticism. As a patron of youth and a fine role model for athletes, he makes an ideal patron saint for our young runners.

Blessed Pier Giorgio died young, at the age of 24. As we run for life, we look to Blessed Pier Giorgio to help us overcome discomfort and physical challenges in order to save souls and do good on earth.
