On Wednesday, August 19th, 2015 Matteo Benjamin Cross came in to the world a healthy, beautiful baby boy. It was only three short weeks later that he stopped breathing in his mother, Kayla's, arms. After an aggressive fight to save his life, he passed away. It was later learned that he had suffered from congenial heart disease.
One of the biggest weekends in Central New York is Heart Run & Walk weekend. This event always raises a huge amount of money for an amazing cause, The American Heart Association. The weekend's event offerings are changing just a bit and may lead to an increase in money raised.
Where will you be on March 2nd? Thousands of people will take the streets near Utica College and through New York Mills that Saturday for America's Greatest Heart Run and Walk. Some years it snows, some years it's freezing cold but regardless of the weather, the event is always a great way to exercise and help a good cause too.
