Have plans Memorial Day Weekend? We do! Join us at the Western Springs Tower Trot on Saturday, May 26. This annual fund raising run has been a local staple for 41 years.
For the first time, proceeds will benefit the Healing Hearts for Ashley Foundation. This worthy organization is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and supporting research for inherited heart rhythm diseases. The foundation is committed to supporting, believing and living for a cure.
The foundation was founded in honor and memory of Ashley Jurjovec in 2017. Ashley Jurjovec was a beloved wife, admired sister and aunt, proud daughter and an esteemed math teacher who tragically died in her sleep from an undetected heart condition at the age of 31. As a result of Ashley’s sudden and tragic passing, the Healing Hearts for Ashley Foundation was formed to help raise awareness for ARVC and support research through funding for The Cardiovascular Genetics Group at Lurie Children’s and Northwestern University.
We participated in the Tower Trot last year as well. The organization it supported was the Bear Necessities Pediatric Foundation. The Bear Necessities Pediatric Foundation is dedicated to eliminating pediatric cancer and providing hope and support to those effected by it. They provide financial assistance to the families as well as fund much needed research.
We are honored to sponsor this exciting running event again this year. Stop by our booth to say hello. Give our prize wheel a spin, we have lots of goodies to give away. There will also be a drawing for free electric toothbrushes, whitening and a surprise grand prize drawing! Join us at the Western Springs Tower Trot on Saturday, May 26. Stop by 8:30 -10:30 AM. We look forward to seeing you then!
