Day 233: Stopped The Clot
The National Blood Clot Alliance has made it their goal to advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of blood clots through its support of research, public and health care provider education and advocacy. One of the biggest fundraisers for the NBCA these past 2 years has been The Jim Flanagan Memorial Golf Outing which is put on by my fraternity brothers in honor of their father. This year's tournament took place this past Saturday, and in a single day, they were able to amass over $7300 to go towards stopping the clot. Unfortunately, due to previous commitments, I was unable to make it to Indianapolis for the tournament, but that won't stop me from helping the cause. So today, for my random act of kindness, I am helping to stop the clot by making a donation in Jim Flanagan's name to the National Blood Clot Alliance. If you would like to join me in stopping blood clots, you can donate here.
