Dad runs marathon blindfolded in honor of daughter
A Pennsylvania man is being lauded for his incredible feat to help his 7-year-old daughter and others like her. Michael Bruno ran and finished Sunday's Pittsburgh Marathon blindfolded.
Bruno began training for the event in November, hoping to gain perspective on what his daughter Cassie experiences every day. She's blind and has autism.
Despite the challenge of running blindfolded, Bruno completed the 26.2 mile course in three hours and 48 minutes and raised $25,000 for vision research.
