Why We Walk
2022 Midlands Heart Walk
I walk for two reasons. The first and most recent reason is the sudden loss of my seemingly very healthy and active husband in early November 2021 at the age of 52 to a heart attack. He is the love of my life and had such a giving soul. I have chosen to create this team in honour of Allan and his generous spirit.
Additionally, Allan always honoured the memory of my sister who passed away at the age of 9 following open heart surgery to repair a congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot.
