know-your-numbers-webCORRECTION: The Sonoma County Heart Walk is on September 23, not September 22 as previously reported.

The Heart Walk is the annual fundraiser for the American Heart Association taking place September 23 at Howarth Park in Santa Rosa. It has become a tradition for the Black Oaks Soccer over the past five years in memory of Matt Sokol, who died of a heart attack during a game in 2012. Read more of this post

Know Your Numbers 4 Matt Sokol, Memorial Walk Sept. 8

Santa Rosa Black Oaks Soccer Club

Thanks to father Nicholas and club member Rob Nied for planning “Know Your Numbers 4 Matt Sokol” as a memorial for Matt, who passed away last year while playing for the club’s adult team.  On Sunday September 8th the American Heart Association will be hosting its annual Heart Walk, a fundraiser that includes a memorial service for loved ones lost and a health fair for those of us fortunate enough to still be living. There is a 1 mile walk in the morning at 9am.

Organizers would like to start a team called “Know Your Numbers 4 Matt Sokol.”  It’s free to join, but donations and sponsorships are welcome.  We’ll walk as a team and those of us without easy access to health care can take advantage of the health fair to get their blood pressure and cholesterol checked.  Invite your friends and mark your calendars.  RSVP on Facebook. In the afternoon, come watch the Black Oaks Adult team, who are scheduled to play Inter at 3pm in the Masters League at For Pete’s Sake Field.

If you would like to donate to the Heart Association via our team “Know Your Numbers 4 Matt Sokol.” The team has already raised over $2,000 and is Number 2 in fundraising efforts. Let’s show some Black Oaks spirit and push Matt to the top! Click Here to Donate
