VIDEO: Know Your Numbers 4 Matt Sokol, September 8, 2013

VIDEO: A memorial speech for Matthew Nicolas Sokol (1971-2012) by Black Oaks teammate Robert Nied, M.D. at the Santa Rosa American Heart Association Walk 2013.

Matt Sokol played soccer for the Black Oaks for more than a decade, but fell August 19, 2012 from a sudden heart attack while playing in a league game.  Experts say thousands die every year from heart disease that could have been preventable if people took the time to know their blood pressure, cholesterol and other cardiovascular numbers.

Thanks to Dr. Rob Nied for reminding us how we can all live longer, for ourselves and our loved ones.  Thank to everyone who showed their support; hope to see you next year at “Know Your Numbers 4 Matt Sokol.”
