Most people don't know that I have been diagnosed with a thoracic Aortic aneurysm. Thankfully it is not currently active and I do not need surgey. Since the diagnosis I have become aware that heart disease is the number one killer across the world and I would like to do something about that! Please help me raise funds and awareness as I participate in the ironheart challenge through the ironheart foundation. The proceeds go directly to heart disease patients/students. Together we can help save lives from and make a positive impact in this world. I will be attempting to backpack 60 miles in 30 out of 48hrs. I'll be hiking the North Country Trail in the Manistee national Forest this March 6 & 7. You can make a donation per mile/hour or even just a set amount. No amount is too small! Every bit will help the foundation and my motivation while I trudge through the Michigan snowy wilderness.
