They have sponsored Run for Aortic Health (3 years) and Team Ritter for the NYC Marathon (4 years) as our Premiere legacy sponsor! They care beyond the classrooms, supporting whole families and charities dear to them year round. They were there to support the David family throughout their ordeal and continue to proudly support awareness to this condition that affected one of their families.

Will Kuo, State Farm – Will Kuo has been a sponsor for Run for Aortic Health since it started 3 years ago, supporting the David family and other families affected by aortic disease. Not only do Will and his team sponsor, they set up a vendor table bringing their amazing energy to the race site. This year’s official “Refuel Station” will help hand out some beverages and give you a boost post race! Thank you for your continued support of aortic disease awareness! Be sure to stop by their table for a great raffle and information on all kinds of insurance needs. Remember, preparing for the unexpected (like an aortic dissection or a destroyed home) is a must BEFORE something happens in your life. Serving all over the DFW metroplex, they can help you manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize your dreams. Let Will and his team help protect you and your family.

MidCities OB/GYN – Aortic Dissection during gestation or post partum is rare, but it does happen. MidCities OB/GYN learned first hand about aortic dissection and the need for a timely diagnosis and treatment due to Run for Aortic Health’s race director having an aortic dissection just after delivering. We are proud to have them sponsor this year’s race and moreso, for teaching so many other providers/medical staff about Aortic Dissection through their experience. Their support of this cause helps further educate the general public that age doesn’t always matter and pregnancy/delivering is not always straightforward. Thank you so much for your support! http://www.mcnt.com/sites/mcob
