Last weekend My daughter Hannah and I had the opportunity to compete in the Clayton NC HeartChase. HeartChase is the newest AHA event (still in a pilot phase) that targets participants in small communities. The MAA has introduced HeartChase to five communities this year. The Fredericksburg VA event is currently the largest in the nation. Thanks to the Youth Market team for taking this project on and huge thanks goes to the volunteers in each of these communities who have figured out how to pull off fun events that drive a strong health message and raise dollars for our mission.
Joining Hannah and I in the picture are Kacie Kennedy, Betsy Vetter, and Myra Jones.
