The Roar 'N Run Virtual Race can be completed by walking, jogging or running anywhere you choose, and you have an entire week (February 7-14, 2015) to complete your mileage  You can choose a distance goal (5K, 10K, 13.1 miles or 26.2 miles) that works best for you.

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.

Event details and schedule

This is a virtual event held during CHD Awareness Week, February 7-14, 2014. How can you compete in a virtual event?  Run, jog or walk anywhere and in any manner you choose. You can be outside, go to the gym, be on a treadmill or on an indoor track--or even come up with a creative way to get the run completed. You can do the entire distance in one day or do it over the course of the week, whatever works for you.  Be sure to post your progress to social media venues so people can see how well you are doing.
