America’s Greatest Heart Run & Walk – Local Stories [PHOTOS]

heart radiothon

It’s always great to watch our community come together for America’s Greatest Heart Run & Walk.  It’s all about raising money for research to help eliminate heart disease.  And it’s also about keeping the memories of our loved ones’ alive.  Almost everyone has run or walked, or knows someone who has been involved with a team.  It’s these personal stories that show how strongly our community supports this event every year.

Those with diabetes are at an increased risk of developing heart disease.  My sister died 14 years ago from a heart attack, from complications with diabetes.  I’m not walking or running this year, but I will be along the course with the radio station, cheering you on and honoring my sister’s memory.

I have several friends that have teams involved this year, some for the very first time.  Team Nanny is prepared for their first walk, and they’ve already raised over $1500!

Fitzgerald Family

The Fitzgerald Family is walking in memory of Barb Fitzgerald, who passed away last year.  It’s still hard on them, especially on her grandson Dustin.

Bringing family and friends together to honor someone’s life is so important.  And there are so many Central New Yorker’s that do just that.  We’ve taken to the web and social media to share our fundraising goals, and it’s had a HUGE impact on the donations.  I have another friend who has created a donation page through the American Heart Association’s website, which provides incredible tools for building your team and spreading the word.  You can check out Team McGrogan here.

We are broadcasting live at the My Heart My Life Expo during the noon hour.  Stop by and get registered for the walk or run, and take advantage of free health screenings and heart healthy tips.  Please feel free to add your Team’s website or Facebook page in the comments below.  We will be setup on Heartbreak Hill to cheer you on!  Thanks for all you do!
