I have been on Ensemble's steering committee for the American Heart Association for years and have always fundraised in honor of my Mom, who I lost to a cardiac event when I was in high school, and for her father, who passed from the same just prior to me being born. I also raised money to celebrate me being a living and thriving survivor of a stroke. But I kept right on seeing just how many times I could tempt fate. And then there was 2022.
This year I'm fundraising (and will be walking onsite. . .yay!!) to celebrate my survival through 2022. "Lifestyle changes" is my new least favorite phrase - I am sure stock in Marlboro has declined dramatically, as has all of my beloved pepperoni! 2023 is about celebrating the passing of the year and a celebration of everything the American Heart Association does to ensure that less and less people are affected by heart attack and stroke as the years progress.
Many thanks in advance for your donation!
