Heart Warriors – This Year and 2016 – Save The Date

Hey Heart Warriors,

First, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to you and yours.

Thanks for making our team a success in 2015 and as of today, at least we know the date for next year’s (2016) Lifebanc’s Gift of Life Walk and Run.

Lifebanc communicated to me that the date for the walk in 2016 has been moved to June 11th and the walk will be in Cleveland as a part of the 2016, Transplant Games. So, PLEASE SAVE THAT DATE!

The Transplant Games will be held from June 10th to June 15th. If you’d like more details about the games you can look the their website HERE or contact Lifebanc.

Registration for the walk will most likely open on Feb 1.

Again, Happy New Year to you and your families … may you find peace, good health and prosperity in 2016.

Be well, DAP



Pictures & Music

Hello everyone …..

Please see (some) our pictures here from Lifebanc’s Gift of Life Walk & Run …… (with music) ….. HEART WARRIORS

I loved the music that played during the balloon launch in the Legacy Garden on Saturday, so I inquired with Lifebanc. The song was called “Second Chance” by Hunter Brucks and it plays on this video. (It can also be purchased on iTunes and Amazon) click here – Second Chance

Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!


Thank You!!

First, I want to THANK the entire team of Heart Warriors! For your support of Lifebanc, your support of OUR team and for your love and friendship.

Secondly, I’d like to thank the staff and volunteers of Lifebanc that assembled another incredible Gift of Life Walk and Run.

And a special thanks to Holly, for the shirts and all of her help!

The day started off under cool, cloudy skies, which soon parted and allowed the summer heat to begin to build. It was a beautiful day.

The thoughts and emotions that we all had from the Legacy Garden will remain with us for a long time. I know throughout the morning their were laughs and smiles, as well as tears and hugs as we remembered our donors, caregivers, families, friends, recipients, friends we’ve lost and others that were too sick to be with us. Every story told touched our hearts in some way.

Each and everyone on this team is a true HEART WARRIOR!

I don’t know the final count, but we currently show 32 members and that we raised $2,010 for Lifebanc’s important mission.

My PC rolled over and died last night, so I have to start over on the pictures and will post them soon. As well as the team picture once its available.

Congrats to our runners ……….

Lifebanc’s Walk is on SATURDAY!!!!

Hello all!

Thank you again for your support of Lifebanc this year.
The Walk is Sat, Aug 8 (this Sat) at Blossom Music Center.
The address is –
1145 W Steels Corners Rd
Cuyahoga Falls, OH  44223
The gates open at 7:30am.
I “plan” on arriving at 7;30 and locating a picnic table for our team Meeting Place / Headquarters. Since they seem to move the tables each year, you can simply starting walking/looking or you can call me on my cell. I did order a “banner” for our team but I can’t pick it up until Sat morning @ Blossom.
If you registered online, I HAVE picked up your T-shirts, running bibs and bandanas, so you do NOT have to go to registration, unless you need to register an additional guest.
Please note that at times the traffic has backed up considerably to get into the parking area.

Heart Warriors are not only the patients …… the families, the friends, the medical professionals that help to support and heal us are also true warriors. And, we can NEVER forget those that gave the ultimate gift … our donors and their families.
