About This Activity

Please join us on May 25, 2019 for the 5th Annual Superheo Run for Belly Buttons to support Gastroschisis awareness and Avery's Angels Gastroschisis Foundation. 

1 in every 2000 babies is born with this condition.  A portion of the intestines, as well as stomach and other internal  organs are on the outside of the body, protruding through a hole in the abdominal wall.  The cause of the defect is currently unknown.  Avery's Angels provides support to the families of babies born with this condition and is the only organization in the US to do so.

All of these babies lose thier belly button in the course of the surgical repair, and are little superheroes from birth, fighting to survive and grow.

Please help us support Avery's Angels and these Belly Button Superheroes!
