Tara Goode sadly learned about the devastating impact of blood clots when her dad, Dr. John Goode, died suddenly in 2012 due to a pulmonary embolism, which occurred as the the result of an undetected deep vein thrombosis in his leg. In 2016, Tara joined NBCA at the Walk to Stop the Clot® in New York City, and raised over $2,000 in his memory.
Just a few weeks ago, Tara teamed up with Barry’s Bootcamp in Washington D.C. to hold a bootcamp class event in her dad’s memory for more than 40 people. Thanks to the generosity of Barry’s Bootcamp in donating the proceeds, over $2,400 was raised.
We are grateful to Tara for her using her energy and enthusiasm to raise awareness about blood clots and funds for the National Blood Clot Alliance.
It gives NBCA great pleasure to honor Tara as the November 2018 Volunteer of the Month. We look forward to working with Tara in the future as she brings the important mission of NBCA to her community. Our thanks to you, Tara!
