“Ryan has a congenital heart defect, and he wants to raise awareness to raise money for the walk,” said Bill Galvin. “We're raising money today. All the money goes to the American Heart Association for research that helps kids like Ryan that are working on dealing with a heart defect.”

The Heart Walk will be held at UAlbany on June 3.
