Team Phelps is asking you to join them at the 2017 America's Greatest Heart Run & Walk, March 4th at Utica College. 

Team Phelps was formed in the memory of Chris Phelps who passed away at the age of 38 due to heart failure. His brother Nic has this to say.

Chris Phelps was a very kind person. Told you how it was, not matter the situation. He was a man's man. He was extremely gifted artistically from Tattoos, woodworking, painting and turning an ordinary object into a piece of art. He was always a dog lover and had his pug, Archer, who is now taken care of by our mother. He would help out anybody, anytime for any reason without ever asking for anything in return and spread this kindness throughout.

Fundraising for Team Phelps is underway, and you can support the team by purchasing Team Phelps gear where all proceeds go to the cause. You'll find order forms at Rockin' Horse, Eternal Images, Dick Smith's Tavern, O'Donnell's Pub & Grill, Prop's Inn, and, on FB. Deadline for ordering is Wednesday, February 15.

If everyone who's sporting a Chris Phelps Tattoo helped out by making a donation or purchasing some 2017 gear that would make a huge impact. Join Team Phelps in the fight against heart disease.
