Gear up for marathon season by joining us at the second annual Remember Our Hearts 5k hosted by Mended Little Hearts of Columbus and Jackie's Journey! For those of you that can't join us in Columbus, register and complete the virtual 5k option and have your shirt mailed to you! Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) are the most common birth defect, affecting 1 in 110 babies and taking the lives of more children than all forms of pediatric cancer combined. Come out and help us remember all CHD angels while raising awareness and fighting for CHD warriors! Since 2004, Mended Little Hearts has provided answers, education, resources and a local-based peer-to-peer support for families of children with heart disease. Mended Little Hearts is building hope for the future! With Mended Little Hearts, children with CHD and their families find strength and understanding from those who share the same experience Jackie Wolfe was born on June 1, 2014 with a CHD. She lived for 5 wonderful months on earth until she gained her angel wings on November 4, 2014. Jackie's Journey is a way to remember her life and raise awareness for CHDs. All proceeds from this race will be donated to Mended Little Hearts of Columbus.
