Saving and improving lives can be as easy as taking a walk. This is my second year doing the Heart Walk and I am beyond excited to walk for an amazing cause.
I started the Heart Walk last year with my mom when earlier in the year she went through major open heart surgery. She had been diagnosed with a leaky valve and then they declared she had to have emergency surgery and they got her in a few days later. It was a difficult and sad time for my family and I and we dealt with many stressful obstacles during and after the procedure.
After going through the tough time, my mom and I signed up for The Heart Walk Fundraiser and raised around $1000 and then walked to raise even more money for others who have heart disabilities and issues. It was a great way to get exercise and there was so many amazing stands to get healthy snacks and water and hats and bags and even put who you are walking for. It was an amazing experience.
Then later in the year, we found out my mother was diagnosed with a leaky valve still. It’s been hard to process, but my mom is pushing through and it currently very healthy! So this year we are walking again! We hope to exceed our goal of $1500 and my personal goal of $500. Last year I raised $250 and I hope to exceed that greatly!!
