Friday night welcomed nearly 100 people at Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital for the 2nd annual Let Your Heart Shine Talent Show. The special event was created to help raise funds for the American Heart Association Heart Walk.

The American Heart Association (AHA) is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. These diseases claim more than 813,804 American lives a year. 

Brooks employees, volunteers and patients support the efforts to help the AHA raise funding and awareness.

This year’s talent show highlighted performances by participants of the Brooks Adaptive Sports and Recreation program as well as members of the Brooks Clubhouse. There was singing, stand-up (or sit-down) comedy, skits, signing and storytelling.

Brandon Hull kicked-off the night with a song he wrote as a tribute to his father Tom Hull, a participant in the Brooks Adaptive Sports and Recreation program. Brandon was followed by the youngest performer of the night, Gage Burns, who had the crowd laughing during his stand-up comedy routine. The night continued with performances by caregivers, Kathi Reyes and Debbie Delp, Brooks Clubhouse member David Herring, Greg Crawforth and many more.
