To My Family & Friends
I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why I am fundraising for the 2017 Ride for Heart on June 4th and running the 5k along with my best friend & coach who I call dad. Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!
I am running the 5K for my grandfather, who had a stroke Fall 2015 - and we are very lucky to still have him apart of our lives.
It was always apparent that family history played a role in our risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But despite significant advances, we only know 20-30% of the genes involved.
With the right funding, doctors predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease within as little as 5 years.
Please help me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today.
"Family, like branches on a tree, we many grow in different directions. Yet our roots remain the same.
