The American Heart Association's tagline is "Life is Why". What's your why? My why is to educate myself on how to manage knowing my family history of heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol and using all of the tools at my disposal to continue to lead the healthiest life possible. My family is my why, but specifically, my two sons, Dominic (5) and Micah (2). They're pretty darn cool, so being around to watch them grow up is kind of a big deal to me.
I walk because I know that with every step, I am saving lives. Those lives are being saved right here at RPI with cardiac research and development. Our partnerships with Albany Med and the Icahn School of Medicine demonstrate RPI's commitment to medicine and to our local and regional community.
We're all tied to heart disease and stroke in some way. We have to change that. Will you help me?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today.
