THE STORY:

 

About me:

I have been a runner all of my life and my Dad was always my number one fan. Last year, as I prepared for my first marathon, I knew this race wouldn't be any exception and as I crossed the finish line, my Dad had tears in his eyes. I will never forget how proud he was of me that day.

Just a few short weeks later, my Dad suffered an aortic dissection and passed away suddenly. My Dad was healthy and full of life and there really were no warning signs. It’s been very difficult this past year as I have had to come to terms with his sudden death and the realization that my biggest fan will no longer be at the finish line when I race. 
I really believe in the work the American Heart Association does to spread knowledge of aortic disease so that there is more early detection and less families will have to go through losing a loved one so suddenly.

I am honored to be part of the Heartosaurus NYC Marathon team so that I continue honoring my Dad and raising awareness and money for this very important cause.

 

About the Team:

Team Heartosaurus for the American Heart Association

The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all they do. The need for their work is beyond question.

Heartosaurus: noun [heart-o-sau-rus] 1. An inspiring online reference for open heart surgery patients. 2. A heart patient with an inextinguishable desire not merely to survive, but to live life to its fullest. 3. A doctor, caregiver, or anyone who makes a profound difference to the cause.

Team Heartosaurus is a global network of individuals collectively driven to increase awareness of the many aspects of heart disease, and who embody a "live life to it's fullest" attitude. They are fighters, and pillars of strength and always looking for patients, doctors, family members and others who share this common bond, to join the team. Team members compete in runs. triathlons, cycling, and marathons. Others simply sport the iconic jerseys as a sign of their belonging. You don't have to be an athlete to be on the team, you just need to be a Heartosaurus.

Team Heartosaurus is made up of people with inspiring, bittersweet stories. Once again we are coming together to embark on the NYC Marathon. As we knock down each mile, we will carry the spirit of loved ones who've passed, inspiring other patients, and honoring the doctors and nurses who cared for us. 

Be a Heartosaurus and make a donation in memory of someone you love who has been affected by heart disease. Your donation will go to the American Heart Association and we'll be honoring you on race day. If you want to get more involved you can also join our team and become a fundraiser even if you're not running!

Thank you for your love and support. We're all living a story, and we'd like you to be part of ours. We're all about living life to it's fullest, helping others, and returning Karma. -- Pass it on!
