The 4th annual Run for LITTLE Hearts is Kansas City's exclusive CHD Awareness Event! This family friendly event is hosted by nonprofit CHD Babies, founded by Lee's Summit mom Kelly Manz, whose daughter Chloe was born with critical heart defects in 2008.
Congenital Heart Defects is the #1 birth defect. There is no cure for CHD. 1 in 3 children who die from a birth defect have a congenital heart defect. Not all CHDs are detected before birth.
All efforts put in to organize this event are on a volunteer basis. All proceeds are donated! The proceeds will benefit local families affected by CHD, fund a free medically supervised summer camp for local kids born with heart defects, CHD research projects at Children's Mercy, and youth heart screenings.
DONATE DIRECTLY TO THIS CAUSE BY GOING TO WWW.RUNFORLITTLEHEARTS.COM AND CLICKING THE PAYPAL BUTTON.
