THE STORY:

On November 4, 2012, I will be running in the ING NYC marathon.  My run is dedicated to the memory of those who have lost their lives to heart disease, particularly, my father, Ebersan Garcia, who passed earlier this year of sudden cardiac arrest while abroad.
 

I am raising money for the American Heart Association-- for more than 40 years, tens of millions of people--from new parents to advanced medical professionals-- have trusted the American Heart Association to deliver their lifesaving CPR training programs and materials. They sponsor the international evaluation of current resuscitation science that leads to the American Heart Association Guidelines on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, for CPR training guidelines used by hospitals, schools and EMS systems in the U.S. and around the world.  Almost 80% of sudden cardiac arrests happen outside the hospital, less than 30% of victims receive bystander CPR and only 8% survive to hospital discharge.
 

As an educator, I was excited to learn about their Be the Beat online Sudden Cardiac Arrest awareness initiative to teach teens all across the country the simple steps that can save a life and create the next generation of lifesavers.  To learn more visit: http://bethebeat.heart.org/ 
 

It has been the love and support of all of my  friends and family that have gotten me through this year, I am certain it will be that same that will drive me to complete the 26.2 miles.  Donating through this website is simple, fast, and secure.  If this is impossible, I ask for your prayers and support.

Thanks brenda for giving us an opportunity to do some little thing. I remember Tio Eber all the time but having things which feel more concrete help I think to keep a person present in our lives and to remember how they touched us. 5 years ago
