In celebration of his ten year heart anniversary, Team Chris was created by Christopher Sadler to walk in the American Heart Association’s 2017 Boston Heart Walk. Ten years ago, I suffered from Heart Failure and was subsequently diagnosed with a condition called Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Severe Arrhythmia. My life threatening cardiac event and condition gave me a new lease and perspective on life. What’s become most important to me now is to do all that he possibly can to take care of himself, so I can live a long and fruitful life. Walking has become one of my greatest passions and it allows me to maintain a healthy lifestyle. it has also provided me with a great sense of gratitude and clarity. I realize how lucky I am and know that I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my amazing support system of family, friends, and doctors. Together, amazing things can be accomplished. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of others.
All of the funds raised by Team Chris will help assist the American Heart Association in furthering their mission “to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.”
