Family, Friends, Sorors, Greeks and Colleagues!
You may ask why I have chosen this name and why I've chosen to announce this on February 16th. Well, my mom has always been my reason why. She is why I'm here. She is why I am who I am. She is why I've continued to raise money for the American Heart Association for almost 10 years.
February 16th, was my mom's heavenly birthday and I could not begin celebrating my 50 TRIPs Around The Sun without honoring her. Also, for those who are members of our sorority, Delta Sigma Theta, you would have known my mom as Big Sister Trip which was short for her maiden name, Triplett. So, to honor her life and to support the American Heart Association, I started a team to raise $5000. Within 48 hours, I had surpassed my original goal and now, I've set a stretch goal of $7500. We are close...let's keep giving.
I'm inviting everyone I know to join my team and help me honor my mom. On March 9th, I will be turning 50 years old and I plan on celebrating this milestone all throughout the year. This is the beginning of my celebratory journey -- please join me.
Due to COVID, the American Heart Association will be offering a digital experience where you can participate where you are. You can also track your progress using the Heart Walk Mobile App. Please download the app, join our team and let's get started. My goal is to recruit a strong team to participate on March 28th with the digital experience. Most of us are choosing the 1K for Stroke activity, but you can select what you want for your activity. Help me reach my goal...can I count on you?
Be a Heart Walk Hero by joining our 50 TRIPs Around The Sun team and together we’ll honor my mom, celebrate my 50th year and help with saving lives.
