Support DC area kids with CHDs by walking with MLH DC Chapter families and support MLH National by donating to the cause. Help us create a roar around the world for CHD awareness! About 1 in every 110 babies will be born with a congenital heart defect (CHD), making it the most common birth defect in the USA; 25% of them will need heart surgery or other interventions to survive. By participating in the 2016 Roar 'N Run Virtual Charity Race, you can bring awareness to CHD and help raise funds to provide Bravery Bags and other support services to families in the hospital.
Join the Mended Little Hearts of DC for a casual 5K on the National Mall February 13 at 10am. We will be meeting at the top of the Smithsonian Metro Station (the Mall entrance - 12th and Jefferson Drive). Participants can walk or run the route. This is an event for the whole family so please bring your kiddos. We will reschedule in the case of inclement weather.
Here's the route that we will use: http://www.runnersworld.com/rw-vip-featured-content/where-to-run-the-national-mall-monuments
If you can't join us for the walk/run, please consider donating to the fundraiser. National MLH gives empty bravery bags and some of the MLH materials that goes in them to our chapter for free. They are able to do this through this national fundraiser. Our group provides these bags to families whose children have open heart surgery at Children's National Medical Center. We appreciate your support!
