BENEFITING: American Heart Association
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Earlier this year, my wife Sheila suffered a hemorrhagic stroke while exercising at the gym. Our lives as we knew it changed instantaneously and every day since has been a test of patience and fortitude. But we consider ourselves lucky as her recovery has gone relatively well with the help of many dedicated healthcare professionals and support from family, friends and co-workers.
We are very grateful for our second chance so please help us help others. I have dedicated my 2013 ING NYC Marathon to the American Heart Association to help increase awareness while providing support for all those touched by stroke.
I hope I can count on your support as I undertake these challenges!
