Being diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy at age 12 was earth shattering for Kevin Kabrey (now 25). He went from being a healthy 3-sport athlete to a child no longer allowed to run or participate in activities that would rapidly raise his heart rate. He went from a healthy happy child, to being a sad boy who looked perfectly healthy, but had to face the chance of sudden death from arrythmias daily.
 
Kevin had a defibulator implanted at 14, open heart surgery at 17 and a new defibulator implanted at 22. Along the way he fought battles with his health and depression. After this 13 year marathon, he was recently cleared to exercise again. Kevin is motivated to help make a difference through the American Heart Association and to help others along the way to fight heart disease.
 
Kevin is currently training and will be participating in his first 5k on June 18 at the KC Heart & Stroke Walk and his goal is to run the whole thing!
