Why We Walk
2022 Cincinnati Heart Mini-Marathon & Walk
Matthew's Mighty Marchers
Matthew was born 23 years ago with pulmonary valve stenosis, a thickening of my pulmonary valve. At age 1, and again at age 14, he had a surgical procedure called valvuloplasty to open my pulmonary valve. Because the procedure is relatively new and saved him from undergoing open-heart surgery twice, his family realizes how important research is in the development of new technology and treatments for heart disease and stroke!
Throughout these 23 years we have met many people who walk for their own loved ones. We have also added more names to the list of people we walk for: my grandpa, my high school bowling coach, my uncle, and other dear family friends who have suffered from various forms of heart disease.
This is why our team Matthew's Mighty Marchers has been participating in the Heart Mini for 23 years and raising funds for the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association.
Please take an active role by joining our team on March 13, 2022 and/or making a tax-deductible donation today.
