• Heather is dedicating the race to her grandfathers, both of whom passed away from heart disease, and the miracle that her mom discovered her aortic aneurism in time to fix it. Thank goodness for life saving screening tests!
• Ilona is dedicating the race to her Sprint coworker, Sonya Judkins, and Sonya's husband, Mike. On August 28, 2016, Mike suffered a fatal cardiac arrest. Thanks to the CPR immediately performed by his wife, Mike survived long enough to receive the care he needed from Prince William Hospital. Sonya's ability to know what to do in this situation was the reason Mike is with us today and this story illustrates the importance of raising money for heart conditions awareness. On June 10th, Ilona will celebrate a survivor and a hero.
