    This link is approved by the HCMA!!
    Hi, my name is Olivia Wiggins and I am going to run a marathon for a cause. In April of 2009 my father died suddenly from a heart disease called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). It is the most common type of genetic heart disease, even though we often hear or see little about it. I want to do as much as I can to raise awareness for HCM and to also raise money for the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association (HCMA) https://4hcm.org/.
    The marathon I am running is September 28th, 2013 and I would appreciate any help you can give me! Every dollar counts!
