 Support Gary Woltal

I just found out today, although I'm thinking the clues were there and I just was too self-involved to notice, that Gary Wotal is participating in a race for the American Heart Association. tomorrow morning for some donations. Yep, you heard it here.  Even though Ike is bearing down on his lovely home state, Gary is running, not walking like everyone else! 

Here is a link to his site at the American Heart Association.

Gary is a great friend.  He continually uplifts us all here at Active Rain, he has a wonderful sense of fun and he is just one of the nicest people I have the pleasure to know.

The American Heart Association is a favorite charity of mine.  My mom's dad died in his forties from a heart attack.  My Uncle Mike, my mom's brother and one of the funniest men I've ever met, died during open heart surgery, I believe in his forties (he died the very week I met my husband Jack and we named my son Michael after him).  My mom has had triple bypass surgery and several angioplasties.  Her other brother Bob has had multiple heart attacks. 

Run, Gary, Run

Be safe and have fun.  Thank you for supporting the American Heart Association.

Hi Susan-This is a wonderful post. It not only highlights the very worthy cause for the Heart Association but it just goes to show what a special person Gary is. I, too as countless other do as well enjoy his wonderful posts. But this post lets folks know something else very special he does. I also want to thank you for the reminder about the hurricane in his home state and letting us know that he is OK. You have had a lot of family members affected by heart problems. I'm very sorry for that. I don't know you but I have a feeling you are a very special person. I'm a relative new Newbie so I'm learning a lot and getting to know a lot of great folks here on AR that otherwise I wouldn't have had the pleasure to get to know thru their blogging. God Bless

Hey everyone!  Many thanks for visiting here and praising our friend Gary.  He is wonderful.  I'm so happy to know that he's okay and that his area wasn't hit too hard.  What a year for hurricanes.  What a wonderful tool we have in Active Rain to keep track of our friends. 

Pat, welcome to Active Rain.  I love it here too.

Mara, I am overwhelmed  You are very sweet.  Thank you.  I feel the same way about you.

Thanks to everyone who commented.  xxoo

Thanks Susan for bringing this to our attention...  I just went to the website and made a donation.  The Amarican Heart Association is such a great cause

Gary is a GOOD Citizen! 

What goes around, comes around!

Thank you Susan for bringing it to our attention!

This is one of the organizations I support.  My father died of a heart attack.  We have made such strides in this field in the past few decades.

Just fyi and a plug for good health:  Take your daily dosages of EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids)!

Susan-I agree 100% on the kind of person Gary is. If a person wants to be encouraged or uplifted all they have to do is read Gary's blogs. My husband had a heart attack a few years back and it is not an easy thing to go through. Thank God he survived. This is a wonderful tribute to Gary and to the American Heart Association.

Some give time, some give money, some give all of themselves.  Nice tribute to a great blogger.

Hi Susan, I never cease to be pleased delighted with the 'open book' attitude here on Active Rain. Case in point- Gary Wotal. It's great to have an open forum yet be up to speed on the newest tech additions.

I just found this post... obviously after the fact, so how did it go? How did Gary do? This is a great cause. I'd like to see some great strides made toward helping those in need.
