Neils Walk 071214 (77)
On July 2, 2005 Neil died suddenly from a fatal heart attack, just two weeks after his 50th birthday. Neil’s Walk was started in his memory, but also to remember and honor those who have suffered from heart disease.  The Neil Danehy Heart Foundation was formed in order to educate the community about heart-related illnesses. This 3 kilometer walk travels through the candle-lit streets of the surrounding neighborhood, and finishes inside J. Fred Johnson Stadium. Every dollar raised from Neil’s Walk goes to the Foundation and stays in the Tri-Cities area.
