Chuck is an example of how modern medicine can save lives.  Diagnosed with coronary artery disease in February of 2015, Chuck went through 6 procedures to clear the blockage in his legs, near his kidney, and most importantly, the LAD artery of the heart (the widow maker).  It was 95% blocked.

It has become Chuck’s mission to give back to people who may be taking the same path towards heart disease.  He has dedicated his time and resources to helping create a movement towards living a heart healthy lifestyle.  After all, Chuck’s new motto is, “It Starts With The Heart”!

Chuck has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Olivet College and has over 30 year of leadership experience in business.  He has hired and developed over 100 employees with the main goal of helping them reach their personal and professional goals. Additionally, Chuck has recently become a Certified Personal Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

With Chuck at the helm and dedicating 100% of his time to Walk for The Beat, we believe this movement will grow into something special.  On October 1st, 2017, Chuck will begin his walk across America to draw further attention to the causes of cardiovascular disease and how it can be prevented.  This accomplishment will be significant because it wasn’t long ago that the arterial blockage in Chuck’s legs prevented him to walk more than 100 yards at a time.
