Team Tropics Member Participates in American Heart Association Heart Walk

Team Tropics member Joe Jacco will participate in the American Heart Walk on Saturday, September 21, 2013 in Sarasota, Florida.

This past Memorial Day marked the one year anniversary of Joe’s wife Elaine receiving a heart stent, and he is walking to “celebrate” her recovery.  As a younger, healthier and more active patient than most, Elaine and Joe want to do their small part to educate people on how they can avoid the silent killer, heart disease.

The American Heart Association engages in a wide range of lifesaving activities with the sole mission of “Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.”

The money Joe raises will be used to fund their work in the local community.

To support Joe and Elaine, please visit their fundraising page here.
