My Walk is Why!
Life is Why! Join me in supporting the American Heart Association!
This is my second year serving as the Chairman of the Bay Area Heart Walk in addition to serving as the Executive Sponsor for First Republic Bank. Last September First Republic Bank celebrated our commitment to health with over 600 employees getting out of the office and walking for their heart health. Additionally, First Republic Bank raised $340,000 to help fuel the American Heart Association’s (AHA) mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Results we are truly proud of!
Personally, I am a longtime supporter of their mission - to inspire everyday people to create lasting change in their health and life. Some of you may know, walking has made a tremendous difference in my life. I lost about 60 pounds – all from walking. The picture you see of me now is the result of my commitment to walk each and every day for essentially 12 years running now (though now I actually run instead).
Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the U.S. and kills more people than all cancers combined. 80% of heart disease is preventable. It is because of these two sobering statistics, as well as my own very personal journey, that I have taken on the role of Chairman for the Heart Walk to help educate those around me about the risk factors for heart disease and stroke.
I humbly ask that you join me in my quest to raise $50,000 for this important cause. Please click "Donate Now" to make a secure, tax-deductible donation and support my efforts.
