That day, I lost my hero. One of my favorite quotes he instilled in my sister and I was; "Adversity is a given in life, how you respond is the difference". Each day, we strive to live our lives in a way that would have made our dad proud. My sister, Lauren, came up with a brilliant way to respond. She found this run and organized this team to raise awareness that even healthy people can have heart disease. We are responding by raising money for research that can detect and treat these problems before someone else loses their loved one. As a family who is all too familiar with heart diesase, this run became the perfect way to honor my dad and support all those in our familiy who have been affected.
Help support our team! You can join myself and the rest of team "Don Tusek" running this March or donate to our cause. I appreciate you taking the time to read my story. With your help, we can try to give longer and healthier lives to all those with heart disease.
