Zack Heger Foundation

Mission Statement
The Zack Heger Foundation was founded for and now remains in memory of Zack Heger who struggled and lost his long and brave battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy May 3, 2022 at age 29.   

While the ZHF mission was initially founded to fund a cure for DMD and improve the lives of those with MD, we have shifted our purpose to focus on methods of improving accessibility and inclusivity to all people.  

Team Feeley's Fundraising Page

Steven and Kristin Feeley are running for the Zack Heger Foundation. Please read below for why they are running for this cause!

Steven I had the privilege and honor of being a personal care attendant for Z for about 3 years. Everyday I saw the struggles and hardships that Z had to endure due to his DMD. He never complained or said "why me” but instead focused on the good in his life. Very rarely did Z not have a big smile on his face and this is just a testament to his positive outlook on life. The small amount of hardship I will face in running a half marathon is absolutely nothing in comparison to what Z endured everyday. I miss Z everyday and anything that I can do to help keep his legacy alive, I will.

Kristin: I’m running for Team Z-man to honor the legacy of Zack. Zack courageously battled through physical challenges with an unmistakable brave spirit. I hope by running for Team Z-man, I can help support the mission of greater accessibility for all disabilities to honor him and perpetuate his legacy.
