It doesn’t take a millionaire to give back. Shoot, it doesn’t even take an adult to give back. Sometimes, the biggest hearts are in the smallest people.
On November 4, 2012, Matthew’s grandma had a devastating stroke that changed his and his family’s lives forever. He remembers her joyous spirit and big heart and has vowed to honor her memory everyday.
Matthew Rochlen is sponsoring a 5K run to help raise money for the American Heart Association. He may be a young kid (12 years old), but his ambitions are huge. His goal is to raise $5,000 and “all of the money will go towards medicine, research and equipment so doctors can stop strokes and save lives.”
I’m not asking for everyone to donate money, but I am asking that you take a minute to think about your loved ones and what you would do for them. Matthew lost his grandma at a young age and now, he’s trying to help others across the world be able to spend more time with the ones they love.
If you would like to donate, follow the instructions below:
What inspires me most about Matthew Rochlen is not that he has a huge heart, but that he is willing to put those he loves above everything else. The greatest part about all of this is that I get to say, proudly, Matthew Rochlen is my little cousin! Go Blue!
