BENEFITING: Children’s Heart Society
The 5th Annual Hope for Little Hearts Walk, benefiting the Children’s Heart society will take place at Rundle Park on October 1, 2017. The Hope for Little Hearts Walk/Run is a family orientated event that includes a 5km or 1km walk or run, BBQ, silent auction, and family entertainment. The proceeds from the "Hope for Little Hearts" run go directly to the Children's Heart Society, to help fund Cardiology programs within the Stollery Children's Hospital and assist families diagnosed with Pediatric Heart Disease. The proceeds from this event will help fund distribution of hospital comfort bags to newly diagnosed families, balloon drops to the Cardiology kids , providing coffee to parents of hospitalized children and family based events. The Children’s Heart Society is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to providing support, education, research and awareness for those children affected with congenital and acquired heart disease. The Children’s Heart Society has raised close to a half million dollars for research and hospital equipment for the pediatric Cardiology Program and related services at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Pediatric heart disease is the most common birth defect and congenital heart abnormalities remain the most common cause of infant death. We invite you to partake in our dedication to raising funds and awareness for pediatric heart disease and the Children's Heart Society. Sign up your team or donate today!
