Union Police Officer Dave Cuozzo

Each Year, a portion of the proceeds from the Mayors Day 5k goes to help a deserving local family.

In December of 2013, Union Police officer Dave Cuozzo suddenly came face to face with a perpetrator that nearly took his life. This unknown assailant mysteriously and suddenly overtook Dave. Within hours of being rushed to Morristown Memorial Hospital, Officer Dave Cuozzo, a 25 year police veteran, husband and father was not just left paralyzed within hours of the onset, he found himself fighting for his life.

While Doctors, Clinicians and fellow police officers searched for possible causes of his spiraling condition, Dave was truly in the fight of his life. Placed on life support, a team of doctors worked feverishly to halt the negative progression of Dave’s condition and identify it. Standing vigil by Dave’s side, his wife Lisa, their four children and Dave’s police department family could only pray for him and his team of doctors. After days of and weeks of isolation and tests, doctors were reasonably sure that a condition called Transverse Myelitis which in turn causes inflammation and damage to the spinal cord was the culprit.

Dave Cuozzo had a consultation with a renowned physician involved with stem cell research Trials. Fully understanding that the “experimental Stem Cell type treatments” May or may not help Dave, he is not opposed to joining the trials. Preliminary cost estimates for the treatment appear to be around $10,000 Dave and especially his family remain hopeful.

We will Never Give up Hope that Dave will walk again; we realize that we may also have to undertake some greater renovations and improvements to Dave’s home for the long term or until he walks again. Won’t you join us in helping Dave?

We encourage our wonderful community to come out show their support!

Your participation as a sponsor, Runner, walker or donor will help us to give as much as we can toward medical costs--- and home renovation to help Dave during this time.
