My name is Sara, and I am running in the Akron Marathon to raise money for Hearts of Hope of Southeast Michigan (heartsofhopemi.org). On June 1st, 2012 my son Tony was born with multiple undiagnosed Congenital Heart Defect's. He has been a fighter since the day he was born. Tony underwent Open Heart Surgery at 11 days old, spent a month in the PICU on life support in January due to RSV and Pneumonia, spent two weeks in April in the PICU with Rotavirus, he has fought hard t survive his first year of life. Hearts of Hope is a non-profit that provides hope and support to families affected by Congenital Heart Defects, as well as raise awareness for the number one birth defect in the country. Their mission is to connect with one another, lend support and give comfort to each other. Please help me help others! Every little bit counts, I am beyond grateful for every penny that is raised :) If my son and others can battle everyday for their lives, than I can battle for a few hours! Thank you in advance and God Bless!
