Did you know that every 15 minutes a child is born with a congenital heart defect (CHD)? Or that about 40,000 infants are affected by CHDs in the U.S. every year? Mended Little Hearts creates awareness about CHD and provides education and peer-to-peer support to families around the nation. Our mission is to empower families affected by congenital heart disease, and we do this through a caring support network.
This virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon (13.1) or full marathon (26.2) is for kids and adults alike! This fun event serves many purposes:
- First, it raises awareness of congenital heart defects, the most common birth defect in the U.S.
- Second, it helps participants do something healthy for themselves during Heart Month.
- And finally, it helps Mended Little Hearts provide support and education to even more families with children who have congenital heart defects and disease.
