TAMPA BAY HEART WALK | Saturday, November 5
Stacie Schaible and the WFLA News Channel 8 team are once again gearing up to fight heart disease and stroke with the American Heart Association. Join our WFLA team Saturday, Nov. 5th from 8-11 a.m. for the much anticipated and ever-popular Tampa Bay Heart Walk. This year it returns to Raymond James stadium and a big crowd is expected. It’s a fun and meaningful way to celebrate heart and stroke survivors, raise lifesaving funds and encourage physical activity.
Every dollar we raise counts, and Florida Blue is matching News Channel 8 donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000.
“Our News Channel 8 work family recently suffered a shocking and heart wrenching loss when our Chief Photographer and Eagle 8 Helicopter Reporter, Paul Lamison, collapsed while out on a walk. Paul was a healthy, funny and beloved family man who everyone at work could depend on for anything and everything. I also lost my mother to sudden cardiac arrest in 2021. She was otherwise healthy. My father was a heart attack and heart bypass survivor and my sister, who suffered a massive heart attack at age 40, is a survivor too,” says News Channel 8 Anchor Stacie Schaible. “My family and our history of heart related issues is why I’m such a huge supporter of the Tampa Bay Heart Walk year after year. I also walk for the heart health of my children with a focus on preventing heart disease for the next generation.
For more than a decade, I have been fundraising and supporting the Tampa Bay Heart Walk and every year it gets bigger and better! I hope you will consider joining my team to help with fundraising or perhaps make a donation to this important cause right now. This is a fight, that with enough support and money, we can win!”
