BENEFITING: Children's Heart Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2013
I've been training for the Philly Half Marathon, and I want to make it count! I'm raising money for The Children's Heart Foundation because my niece Grace (age 10) was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, which is the most severe congenital heart defect. As an infant, Grace had three open-heart surgeries. The lifelong prognosis for those who have had this three-stage procedure is unknown. Not only does The Children's Heart Foundation fund research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects, it also supports children and families who are dealing with the overwhelming stress of a diagnosis. Please help me raise funds for this very important cause. Thank you!
