Cleve Holden

Family & Friends - Thank you for visiting my page!

Growing up I always spent time with my "Chattanooga Cousins". Trading baseball cards with Cousin Todd, zipping around on Cousin Frosty's boat and bantering back and forth with Geoff "Big Country" Holden. Chattanooga is in my blood. Part of our "bantering" recently has been around being a Father to girls. Geoff has three, Cara, Emily and Olivia.

Cousin Cara or "KayBo" and I have always had a bond. She's traveled to Atlanta and helped us out with our girls. She's also part of the "Holden Pipeline" to Takeda Pharmaceuticals. And I like to think that maybe I've shared a nugget or two that has helped her out in life! On 10/22/2016 our family traveled to Chickamauga, GA and celebrated her marriage to Adam Miller. Since 2016 I've been to Hawaii with the Millers, some Holden Family Reunions and one or two Tennessee Football Games. Our family loved Adam, he was kind, quiet, poised, funny and always had a smile on his face. Most importantly to us, he loved our KayBo.

On 4/28/20 our Holden & Miller family's hearts were broken when Adam suddenly passed. Adam's body was fighting a silent battle against Sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis is a rare, often chronic inflammatory disorder that causes the formation of granulomas, or clumps of inflammatory cells. While this disease affects as many as 200,000 Americans, there is currently no known cure and treatment options are limited and often ineffective.

I have chosen to support the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) by fundraising for Team KISS! On September 26, 2021 I will race in the Chattanooga Ironman. The Chatty IM is a 2.4 mile swim, 116 mile bike and a Marathon. I will be racing in Adam's memory and to race awareness for FSR. I will also be racing in honor of my Cousin Cara Holden. Her strength, grace, grit, resolve and faith have been an inspiration to us all. She is our hero.

KISS stands for Kick In to Stop Sarcoidosis, and that’s what you'll be doing by supporting my page. FSR is the leading nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for this disease and improving care and treatment options for sarcoidosis patients. The funds all go directly to FSR and their programs for improving patient education, supporting patients and their caretakers, and of course, funding research to find better treatment options and one day, a cure.

Please consider helping me reach my goal.

Holden On,

- Cleve
