A heartfelt cause

Denny Crum and Meghan Steinberg became friends when Meghan was undergoing treatment for leukemia six years ago. He’s now one of her biggest supporters.

We all know cardio is good for the heart, but Saturday’s Cardio for Kids with Cancer will also touch the heartstrings.

Even as her own battle with cancer continues – six years after her initial diagnosis – Meghan Steinberg continues to raise money for Meghan’s Mountain. The charity offers assistance and, more importantly, hope to kids fighting the wretched disease. Among its most fervent supporters: Hall of Fame Coach Denny Crum, who has helped Meghan as she climbs her own “mountain.”

You’re invited to lend a hand to the cause on June 11 at the Louisville Athletic Club on Westport Road. If you donate (or raise) at least $30 for Meghan’s Mountain, you can participate in a free day of cardio at the LAC that begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. You don’t have to be a member (I’m not) to enjoy any of the group classes or work out on your own. You’ll not only get a chance to meet Meghan in person, but there will be several special guests, free food compliments of Martini’s Bistro and Texas Roadhouse.

Plus, you’ll also take care of your heart in myriad ways. Hope to see you there to support a young woman who continues to fight for her life and the lives of so many others.

Charity Golf Outing

A few weeks ago, Sherry Spanyer asked me to participate in the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors (GLAR) Charity Golf Outing. I said sure – until I realized she was asking me to play. That’s when I said no way.

I’m always game for a charity event – and this one benefits the St. John Center for the Homeless and Gilda’s Club Louisville – but putting me in a golf foursome? You don’t want to do that to your guests.

Still, GLAR is a tremendous group of individuals who have a collective heart for this community, and I really wanted to be involved. That’s why I’ll help drive the drink cart on Monday, June 13 during the scramble, which starts at 1 p.m. at Standard Country Club. You’ve been forewarned.
