Anyone who knew Doug Kehoe, had the pleasure of knowing the kindest, most genuine, and funniest man ever. He can be described as 'a teddy bear in a linebackers' body' and that couldn't be more accurate. Even if you only had met Doug briefly, you would leave the conversation feeling as though you've known him for a life time - and probably gained a new friend out of it too. Doug Kehoe was a loving and PROUD father, brother, son, husband, and friend; but unfortunately he left us too soon. Our 'Douglas Kehoe' team is working hard to honor his memory in raising money for heart and stroke research. Last year our mighty team of 13 runners raised an amazing $4,175 (just shy of our goal of $5,000) and this year we are confident that with your help, we will hit and hopefully surpass that amount! Please help us reach our fundraising goal by making a donation.
We don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and do not want to lose ANY MORE loved ones to cardiovascular disease. 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!
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.
