My Family…they are my Why!! Family has always been the reason why I walk and raise funds.
2020 marks my 13th year walking and raising funds and my 11th year as a team captain. Since 2008, contributions to support me and my efforts have raised nearly $40,000 for the AHA.
That is amazing!!
For 2020, I have set a personal fund raising goal of $1500…will you help me reach that goal?
Why is this so vital?
- Cardiovascular disease is the #1 cause of death in the U.S., and people with cardiovascular disease are at increased risk for contracting the COVID-19 virus and experiencing complications.
- The AHA is a major force of funding to improve heart health through research and education, including a commitment of $2.5 million for research efforts supporting COVID-19.
- Hospitals are seeing a significant reduction in patients going to their facilities for heart attack and stroke, due to the fear of COVID-19. The AHA needs our support more than ever, as they’re in a unique position to educate the public on the warning signs of heart attack and stroke, and seeking immediate help if they’re experiencing those symptoms.
I urge you to DO SOMETHING to support this great cause!!! And now more than ever AHA needs our support as
--Join my team and walk with me and my loved ones; get your loved ones to join the team and walk with you
--Make a donation to support this wonderful organization
--Get yourself educated on the importance of cardiovascular health so you do not become a statistic
--Move!! Exercise is so important for cardio health…and it reduces overall stress and makes you feel great!
Anything you do WILL make a difference! My loved ones and I appreciate your support!!
Thank you in advance for your support!
