THE HONOR STRIDE
At the Honor Stride, it’s our mission to help achieve a kinder, more compassionate world while raising awareness of Myocarditis through community outreach and philanthropic efforts – supporting the Myocarditis Foundation, scholarships and other community endeavors in harmony with our mission.
THE FACES BEHIND THE CAUSE
The three founders are Julie (Campbell) Lewis, Amanda Ford, and Jessica Minner. Knowing friendship is something to be cherished and to never be taken for granted, they decided to do something to honor Ashley’s life while also helping others like Ashley, to defeat these diseases and allowing for longer lives.
The Honor Stride is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has raised thousands of dollars for Myocarditis research and awareness in memory of our friend, Ashley Burgauer. The organization continues to honor Ashley’s legacy through local outreach projects such as awareness engagement exercises with local elementary schools, health and wellness events for the whole family, and an annual silent auction. All events and fundraisers help raise awareness of Myocarditis, as well as supporting medical professions and those seeking a nursing career and education through an upcoming scholarship endeavor.
