I walk because I know that with every step, I am saving lives.
My son, Tumelo, is a direct beneficiary of heart research. He had an open-heart surgery as an infant to address a congenital heart defect. Today, he is a healthy and active 16 year old. The mission of the American Heart Association is personal to me and my family.
I also walk to help bring heart disease and stroke awareness to our communities. These diseases dispropotionately impact people of color. Bringing awareness to these issues can help save future generations.
We're all tied to heart disease and stroke in some way. We have to change that. Will you help me?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today.
