Beebe taking a hike for heart health
By Janine Giordano

Jim Beebe is alive and well today because he went to the doctor immediately when experiencing heart pain. As a result, he avoided what could have been a very serious heart attack which could have ended his life.

Today he suffers from heart disease. But that is not stopping him from participating in this year’s America’s Greatest Heart Run & Walk, 2009, sponsored by the American Heart Association.

“I did not know I had heart disease. I had chest pain and was told if I did not get in there I would have had a very serious heart attack. I believe so strongly that I may not be here if I did not go in for my appointment,” Beebe said.

On Saturday, February 7, Beebe will join thousands in their fight against heart disease as they walk and run around a track in effort to raise funds and awareness.

Bebee got involved through his wife, Judy, who works at Spring Brook in Milford. “They have a team that is in it, and I’m just trying to collect  money for them. I’m just a walker trying to bring awareness to heart disease. I know people who have had heart attacks and I have heart disease myself. This is my first year, having just been diagnosed and I wanted to do anything I could to bring awareness to this,” Beebe said.

As of presstime, Beebe had raised $300, but said he would like to raise at least $500 for his effort. Donations can be mailed in his name, and if they are mailed out before the end of March the credit will be given to his effort, as long as it is noted that the donation should be applied to Jim Beebe’s walk.

Anyone interested in taking part in this effort will have numerous chances to do so as runs are scheduled throughout the area. Another run is set for Utica on March 7.

The walk will begin at the Alumni Field House, SUCO, One Ravine Parkway, Oneonta, N.Y. For more information call 315-266-5403, or visit their website, www.uticaheartrunwalk.org or the heart association’s site at www.americanheart.org.
