It is the New Year and with it comes the end of a year of profound loss and sadness marked by the passing of Susan Carr Hanson. Last year, I participated in the AHA Beach Ride in memory of her and our Dads and was so honored to be able to complete something that we had planned to do together. It was supposed to be a ‘one time deal’ but I found the ride experience to be so much more than just a way to fulfill this obligation. Knowing that the funds raised were going to help an organization dedicated to preventing the heart related problems that have claimed some of our loved ones took on deep meaning. So this ‘one time deal’ has now turned into at least a ‘two time deal’ as I am intending to ride again in 2017.
I will look forward to sharing the days of the AHA Beach Ride 2017 with special friends of the ‘Savvy on the Beach’ team as we join many others to raise funds and bring awareness to a worthy cause.
