THE STORY:

Lucinda Dass wrote -

Karen's Walk is hosted by Phi Sigma Pi and began over 13 years ago when Karen Decker, a close friend of the fraternity passed away from postpartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM), a rare heart disease that affects mostly pregnant women.

Karen was only 22 years old and she left behind her six-week-old daughter, Hannah. In the beginning, Phi Sigma Pi created the Walk for Hannah, meant to raise money toward a college fund for Hannah.

The Walk for Hannah subsequently became Karen's Walk, and has since raised over $25,000 for cardiomyopathy research.

2016 marks the 13th Annual Karen's Walk. This year, our goal is to attract at least 100 participants and raise $2000. In addition to meeting our fundraising goal, we hope that the 5K will raise awareness for cardiomyopathy, as it affects the lives of many.

It is also Phi Sigma Pi's goal to promote exercise and the practice of living a healthy lifestyle on campus and in the Rochester community. Karen's Walk is entirely student run and our cause is something that Phi Sigma Pi is extremely passionate about.
