My good friends Sara and Juan Gonzalez were faced with unimaginable tragedy when they lost their son, Monroe Mirlo, in January to a congenital heart defect. CHDs are the world's most common and deadly birth defect.
Along with another courageous family, Sara and Juan formed Yellow Brick Road: The Holden Flynn Foundation to raise awareness and provide assistance to families of hospitalized children with CHDs.
I'm humbled to be running in honor of Monroe and to support this new, grassroots foundation. Learn more about their foundation at ybrf.org.
