Thank you for joining us to celebrate 45 years of making a difference in countless lives throughout the Mohawk Valley at Friday’s Healthy for Good Expo and America’s Greatest Heart Run & Walk on Saturday! What a wonderful weekend of events filled with educational experiences, heart-health screenings, physical activity and so much more!

And thank you for helping us honor the humble beginnings of this wonderful event started by Larry Lewicki and a few Steuben Striders running 18 miles from Barneveld to Utica to deliver a check to the heart radiothon.

Who would have thought from that kind and meaningful gesture that all these years later we would still be celebrating their act of kindness that has turned into 45 years of improving health and saving lives of our friends and our families like Angel Woolheater and Jaxon Hayes who both have survived heart surgeries and a stroke.

They are survivors because of incredible medical advances funded by the dollars you raise. Just amazing!

You truly are making a difference in so many ways!
