Why We Walk
2020 Greater Atlanta Heart Walk & Run Digital Experience
My son "Grant" is my inspiration. He is why I walk for this cause. As a 17 year Kids At Heart survivor at Sibley Heart Center (Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston), Grant makes me proud to be his mom. After enduring his 5th open-heart surgery on February 4, 2020 and hospitalized for over 30 days our family became even stronger.
Grant's experience inspires me to not only advocate for him, but for all the other kids on the Cardiac Acute Care Unit (CACU) at CHOA (Egleston). Thanks to my team "HeartWize" members for giving back for this cause. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide and stroke ranks second globally. Please continue to invite others to join our team or donate today and help us change this statistic.
The Heart Walk is a time of celebration, joy and inspiration. People unified in support of a single goal: to see a world free of heart disease and stroke.
Be a Heart Walk Hero with us and together we’ll help save lives.
