Dear Family and Friends,
I’m very thrilled to formally announce the creation of Team Chris, which will be taking part in the American Heart Association’s Boston Heart Walk on Saturday, September 9th, 2017. Ten years ago, I suffered from heart failure and was subsequently diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Severe Arrhythmia. My life threatening cardiac event and condition has given me a new lease and perspective on life. What’s most important to me now is doing all that I can possibly do to take care of myself, so I can live a long and fruitful life. Walking has become my greatest passion and allows me to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In addition, it has provided me with a great sense of gratitude and clarity. I realize how lucky I am and know that I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’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 assist the American Heart Association in furthering their mission “to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.” You can support Team Chris by joining my team to walk or by making a donation of any amount that you feel most comfortable with.
From the bottom of my heart, I truly appreciate all the love and support. Hope to see you in September!
