HCS Media Network Joins Forces With American Heart Association for Richmond Heart Walk!

Many of you know that, on April 8th of this year, Rob Witham, head of operations for HCS Media Network (and better known as the "@hanoversports guy"), suffered a heart attack while napping at home.

Through the incredible work of Henrico EMT's and the staff at Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center, an emergency stent procedure was performed on a 100 percent blockage of the entrance to his aorta. Two days later, amazingly, he was home from the hospital.

We've spent the summer rehabilitating, getting ready to make 2013-14 our best year of sports coverage yet. And now, we're ready to give back to those who helped us, in the hopes that others will never have to face the same challenge.

HCS MEDIA NETWORK (including @hanoversports, @henricosports, @cfieldsports) is proud to announce we will have a team participating in the 2013 Richmond Heart Walk, taking place Saturday September 28th on Brown's Island!

We need your help!  You can help either by becoming a member of our walking team or by donating to our team!

We hope that, by tomorrow, to have all the links up that you need to join us in this effort.  OUR GOAL is to raise $2,000 to fund research and awareness to help the American Heart Association reach its mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Follow us on all three Twitter feeds for links to donate or join the team!  They should be up tomorrow!

And from Rob and the gang at HCS Media Network, THANK YOU!
