Most are familiar with the American Heart Association and what it represents. Many just pass the opportunity by to assist this organization when it reaches out to our communities. Typically, the community of West Plains is not included in many events for organizations such as these because we are a small town. Last year, however our town was represented in the Annual American Heart Association walk in Springfield through our local Walgreens. This year, we are being represented again. To all my friends and family who live here in West Plains, and surrounding areas, I would like to encourage your support and give our town the good name it deserves. This years Heart Walk will be on April 13th, and our local Walgreens is already diligently arranging fundraisers and sponsorships from our community to reprsent the town we are from. Many are turning down this opportunity to be involved and it is truly a sad thing to hear. This year, the funds from the fundraising and walk will go to help a little boy who needs a heart valve replaced, and he is from the Southwest Missouri area. The story on this little guy is remarkable. All proceeds from these local events go to fund the surgeries and care this little boy needs to have a healthy life. I am moved to try to help in any way possible because I know, if the shoe were on the other foot, and my child was the one needing help I would want my friends, family, and community there beside me. I am activly participating in this event this year and looking for others, who like me, would like to contribute to the care of this little boy and represent our community. Are there any individuals or businesses within our local area that would like to also contribute towards this cause?
