Breathe Deep Haymarket, a 3K walk & run, was started by volunteer coordinator Heather Busicchia to honor her late grandmother, Vivian J. Whitmer (“Mema”). Vivian was a strong role model for her four children and five grandchildren, a dedicated Christian, an artist, and a musician, and was never shy to voice her opinion. Despite her incredible strength, Vivian passed away of lung cancer on April 26, 2004. Although Heather was only 13 at the time of her grandmother’s passing, she made a promise to herself that she would not let Vivian’s memory fade… and to help create a world where other families wouldn’t have to go through what hers did.
