Why do I run for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation? In 2006 I lost my wife to a brain aneurysm, she was just 41. Gwenn was full of life, she loved spending time with her family and friends, she was a workout fanatic and she enjoyed spending time in the outdoors.
But on February 25th 2006 after spending a great day with her family she complained of a headache and became ill, she decided to go to bed early. Gwenn was suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a ruptured aneurysm, sadly she passed away on February 26th.
Today I run for the BAF to raise awareness and to honor Gwenn’s memory. I had never heard of a brain aneurysm and I didn’t know the warning signs or symptoms. It may or may not have saved Gwenn, but I want others to be aware of the signs. Please visit the BAF website @ bafound.org to learn more about brain aneurysms and the work of the BAF.
I hope you’ll support my run by making a donation today.
