February is American Heart Month, and our incredible Highway Department team just raised $1000 of personal funds to donate to the American Heart Association in honor of Highway Department Assistant Kathleen Leonard!
In 2021 Kathleen Leonard experienced a life-altering event. One moment she was sleeping peacefully; the next, she was in sudden cardiac arrest.
At just 48 years of age, Kathleen was the picture of health. Fit and energetic, she ate right and exercised regularly. Heart disease wasn’t on her radar, yet it struck in the middle of the night without warning. Years later, the terrified looks in her children's eyes after witnessing their mother's near-death experience still haunt her. Now, she does all she can to spread awareness about heart disease so that her loved ones never have to live through that kind of fear again.
