Dear Roar ‘N Runner,
For all of you who gave so generously with your rabble-rousing ROAR for congenital heart disease (CHD) awareness either through participation in the event or through donating to it, THANK YOU!! You made this Roar ‘N Run the best yet, and we hope you had fun too. If you are interested in making another donation to this event, you can still do so by clicking on the “Donate” button on this page.
So far Mended Little Hearts has raised almost $40,000 gross, and this funding is vital to supporting our families. It will go directly to the following programs:
- Expanding the Bravery Bag Program for families in the hospital (currently giving almost 7,000 bags annually)
- Increasing our accredited visiting program to serve more families
- Improving and expanding the Mended Little HeartGuide digital parent resource, including translation into languages other than English and Spanish
- Creation of a new tween and teen peer support program
No one wants to ask for funding, but the reality is that we rely on the generosity of people like you to be able to do what we do best—provide support programs to families in crisis. We also rely on you to help us raise awareness about the most common defect in the United States.
So, again, from the bottom of our Mended Little Hearts, thank you!
Megan Setzer and Siobhan Pawelczyk
