My father had a heart attack while I was pitching for the Westport Little League championship. I was 12 years old and miraculously, my father survived the heart attack. The American Heart Association Walk/Run brings awareness to a disease that effects many people. Each year The AHA has two of these run/walks, there is one in the spring and one in the fall. Each time, they honor two survivors of heart attacks and there stories are very compelling. Here are only a few images of the walk. For more information about joining, just click on AHA above.
