THE STORY:

RUNNING IN MEMORY OF JOE AND FOR THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION

My brother Joe died suddenly January 29, 2015 at age 35. Of severe heart disease. He left behind a beautiful 3 year old daughter. Heart disease sucks. It is a preventable and improvable disease. Even with a significant family history, you can live a long and relatively healthy life if you know how. Part of working through my grief has included thinking about how I could do something or change something. Obviously I can't bring back Joe and help his heart health, even though that's what I would want to change most. I CAN make a difference by helping others...helping other little girls (and boys) keep their daddies (and mommies) around for a long time. So, I've decided to raise money for the American Heart Association, which works toward the goal of improving heart health by providing/supporting educational programs and research. How am I doing this? Running. It goes well with heart health! I'm even more motivated to run after Joe's death. I think of him every time I run, and wish I could have gotten him out there with me. I'll be running the US-only Detroit Half Marathon October 18, 2015, and I've chosen the American Heart Association as my charity of choice. Any support you give in memory of Joe is so appreciated.

Michelle, believe it or not but I got him out there running with me a couple of times. He kept right up. I really believe he was on the right track. He always told me to stop nagging him about exercise but I didn't give up! I also think of him every time I run. I play Nickelback as loud as I can. (That's what he liked to listen when we went running) 2 years ago
