To help me continue to Raise Stroke Awareness YOU need to step up too!

You are not running, why should I donate?
If you have considered that it would still be the right thing to do but then clicked away, I’m here on video to remind you of why your donation to the American Stroke Association is important. If you have donated to my fundraising and stroke awareness efforts in past, I sincerely thank you again. I look forward to your continued support. I appreciate every penny that comes in, especially in a difficult economy. You can help make a difference. Every donation counts. I hope you have been helped by my blog at know-stroke.org, and now is the time for you to step up. It has been my intent from the start that through putting my story out there I might further educate others about their own condition. In doing so I have been blessed to get to know many of you personally over the phone and many have expressed thanks and stated they will become more informed in their local community to spread awareness. That is terrific! If you play my video you’ll see why (more than ever this year) I’ll need your help. That’s right, if you’ve already played the video, you know a knee injury has forced me out of the Boston Marathon this year. Even so, I can run the marathon in spirit with my sister and continue to move forward with my national stroke awareness campaign.
You can also donate right now through our secure online donation link . Donations to the American Stroke association are tax deductible. You’ll see when you click the link, my wife and I have started off the donations by showing our support for my sister Lori through a $150 dollar donation (or $50 each) to honor each of our three children.
