It has always been my dream to run the NYC Marathon. Will you help me?  See more
Stuart Helfenstein


I'm running the NYC Marathon on November 6, 2011 and raising funds for the American Heart Association. Will you help me?

One of the reasons that I was inspired to select the American Heart Association is that my mother-in-law died of heart disease seven years ago.  And, my wife happens to also work for the AHA...

80% of heart disease is preventable through diet and exercise.  We all can take small steps to improve our cardiovascular health.  Can you find an additional 30 minutes a day to walk or run or bike?

I have set a personal goal to raise funds that are needed for critical cardiovascular disease research and education.  You can help me by making a donation.  Click the link below to visit my personal page where you can make a secure, tax-deductible online donation.  If you prefer, you can also mail me a donation directly.

Heart disease and stroke are the nation’s number one and three killers.  Here are some ways that you can help!
- $25 gives 50 people educational materials that teach them how to personally reduce their risk of Heart Diseases and Stroke
- $50 delivers the message of healthy nutrition to elementary school students through lesson plans and activity guides
- $100 allows one hospital to teach its patients, caregivers, and health professionals about the risks of Stroke – the nation’s #3 killer

Please feel free to forward this message on to your friends and family who also might want to a make a difference.  Thank you, in advance, for your support.
