Running to help Roland and his family!

In October 2012, our dear friend, colleague, father, son, brother, and husband, Roland Hea, was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML).  Roland is the most positive, kindest, generous individual and we all care so much about him.  So many of us want to be able to help in any way we can. 


In lieu of being able to eradicate his leukemia, a group of us are going to run the Platte River Half Marathon on April 7, 2013 in his honor under the team name "Roland's Runners".  We want to use this opportunity to spread the word about donating blood and platelets, as well as the National Bone Marrow Registry.  Roland is a frequent customer of people's generous donations.  He is currently recovering from a recent bone marrow transplant.


Please see his CaringBridge page at:


All of the donations for this page will go towards helping Roland and his family during this battle and encourage us to run for the Heas!  We love you Roland!
