Mission Statement

To educate the community on how to avoid Brain Bleeds, Stroke and Heart Disease through healthy life choices and encourage everyone to take on a Never Quit attitude and live life to its fullest.


Prevention is the key to avoiding such medical issues. The Never Quit Tour has the unique opportunity and ability to reach our youth and in turn their parents, extended family and friends. The goal is to teach them of prevention, living an active and healthy lifestyle, and if stroke, heart disease or a brain bleed should ever happen to anyone they know, how to take care of that person with love, strength and understanding. Gerard’s wife Reidunn, and sons Erik and Paul and daughters Sonya and Karina learned how to help her husband and father surpass all barriers placed on him. And... Karina’s status of being one of the top female surfers in North America along with local medical specialists deliver a very powerful and unique presentation and message to local schools at the Never Quit Beach Fest Health Day that focuses on family, fun and health.

This organization was inspired by Captain Gerard Petroni, his family and the local health and medial community that helped Gerard cross barriers that most believed not possible. The community watched a man overcome and defeat the odds with a Never Quit attitude, strong faith in God, and the unending love and support of his family. Out of Gerard’s stroke and brain bleed, bad turned to good and a story of hope and prevention developed that can now be shared so that all my benefit.

After approximately 5 months of not being able to adequately communicate, Gerard Petroni was asked if he could write anything on a piece of paper, what would he write? Gerard wrote the words..."Never Quit."
