UW’s Race Porter and Myles Gaskin are raising awareness about mental health, one broken heart at a time

Race Porter paid $3.99 for his first broken heart.

Actually, it was two hearts — a two-pack of iron-on patches he purchased at Michaels craft store in Interbay last May. He kept one heart intact and, using his mom’s iron, attached it onto the left sleeve of a Costco-brand plain white T-shirt.

He took the other red patch and cut a jagged line through the middle of it — his first broken heart — and ironed that onto the left sleeve of another white T-shirt.

Depending on how he was feeling on any given morning, that was how he decided which shirt to wear.
