THE STORY:

In June of 2003, I lost my father to heart failure. It has been nine years since our family’s big loss and I am now inspired (and finally found my courage) to do something I’ve always wanted to do—make a difference.

I signed up for my first full marathon and decided this is the perfect opportunity to show my support to help prevent heart disease. This is about giving life and giving back to the community, and I am taking action locally by supporting UCSF’s Pediatric Cardiology Division.

How It Works:
UCSF’s Pediatric Cardiology division makes a difference in the lives of children and expecting mothers with high-risk pregnancies who are impacted by heart complications. Here are some examples of how the Division of Pediatric Cardiology uses donated funds:

• Patient Care—Donations may be used to purchase toys or videos to occupy the children and make the patient environment as accommodating as possible.

• Research—Donations play a vital role in financially supporting the efforts of our researchers, who investigate ways to improve the livelihood of patients with heart complications.

• Education—Donations fund scholarships and educational programs. UCSF’s goal is to ensure that patients receive certified expert care is the continued education of its Pediatric fellows and residents
.

How You Can Help:
Step 1: Register for the race! (5k run/walk, half marathon or full marathon)
Step 2: Join the “I Heart” Fundraising Team (Select “Join Team” under  “The Team” section)
Step 3: Follow the instructions on Crowdrise to share your fundraising page. Email to friends and family, post to your Facebook and Twitter... publish it anywhere you can get the word out.
