Why We Walk
2020 Cedar Rapids Heart Walk Digital Experience
Drake's Pace Crew
We’re walking for our health and yours. For our parents, our children, and our grandchildren. Who will you walk for?
Walk with us for Drake Michael! Drake was born on January 15th, 2013. On the 16th we learned he was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. Drake has had two open-heart surgeries (placed on bypass), a permanent pacemaker placement (vetricularly paced), another surgery to replace a non-functioning pacemaker lead (access reached below the sternum - did not have to crack his chest again), many cardiologist and pacemaker clinic appointments... some seamless, others... not so much. He's a boy! And he is a WARRIOR.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide and stroke ranks second globally. Please join our team or donate today and help us change this statistic.
The Heart Walk is a time of celebration, joy, and inspiration. People unified in support of a single goal: to see a world free of heart disease and stroke.
Be a Heart Walk Hero with us and together we’ll help save lives.
