BENEFITING: Adult Congenital Heart Association Inc
Barbara Seidel wrote -The Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve the quality of life and extend the lives of congenital heart defect survivors. Thirty six years ago I was born with a heart defect called tetrology of fallot. I was lucky to have a supportive family and access to great health care in NYC. I was fortunate to have an excellent repair and was therefore given the opportunity to be a nurse, a wife and a mom (to 3 beautiful children)! Running has always been a part of my life and has helped me to stay healthy and fit while living with congenital heart disease. This year I will run a marathon in the city where I received my initial care, where I work, where I have lived and played throughout my life.
Please support me and ACHA's mission to improve and prolong the lives of heart defect survivors through a donation! No amount is too small! If not come out watch the marathon and cheer me on! It is a great party in a great city! Thank you!!
