2019 RGB Annual Report - Page 29

“I am honored to have been chosen for the 2019
Jim Ryan Award. I was fortunate to have known Jim
and to be compared to a person of such incredible
character is so humbling. Choosing a charity for the
$10,000 award is a decision I didn’t take lightly, as I
know the impact can be very significant. I chose to
support two separate charities that have made an
impact on me.
Susan G. Komen Minnesota does an amazing job
supporting breast cancer research advancements and
breast health education, as well as helping patients and
families navigate the extensive process involved with
diagnosis and treatment. While battling breast cancer
myself, I was able to witness the impact of those dollars
first hand. The American Heart Association is also
important to me because in the last year, my husband
lost an aunt to heart attack, my father-in-law underwent
a successful triple bypass surgery and my father had a
successful double valve replacement surgery.
I am so thankful for these life-saving organizations and
what their successes mean to so many families.”
