5k Charity Run at Wheeler Farm to support 25 year old Ashley Irvin who has recently received a Heart Transplant.  We also want to raise awareness and support all types of organ donors and donor recipients.

Ashley's story:
In 2009, Ashley aka "Skwig", was just about to return to Idaho State University for summer soccer training but she was having a difficult time breathing. A chest x-ray revealed that she had an enlarged heart.  After a couple of tests she was diagnosed with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Six months later, doctors implanted a Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Device on her heart. Then in 2013 Ashley suffered a major stroke.  She recovered well, took on a full schedule of school and graduated as a Physical Therapist Assistant. After graduation,  she became very symptomatic. In 2014 she had open heart surgery and recieved a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD).  At that time she was listed on the Heart Transplant List. After 4 months on the list she graciously received her new heart. Ashley will be 7 months post transplant at the time of the 5k and plans to run with all of her supporters.

We find ourselves praying every single day that Ash continues to do well. Read more about her journey and follow her story at: http://heart4ash.blogspot.com/
As you can imagine, Ashley's journey has been nothing short of a financial burden on her, her husband and the rest of her family. All proceeds from the race will be donated to help with hospital bills, medication costs and donor awarness.
