Event description

Description

The Gift of Life, Inc. was originally initiated by Rotary District 7250 in 1975, and is today a worldwide International Service Program. Its primary purpose is to help those needy children who require corrective heart surgery secure another lease on life, through the miracle of open-heart surgery in a Gift of Life participating hospital in the United States and abroad.

Members of the The Gift of Life, Inc. help further the cause of world peace and understanding by facilitating free medical services to children suffering from heart disease regardless of race, creed, sex or national origin and who otherwise lack access to such services.

The program reaches out to children throughout the world, including the United States. It is a not-for-profit, tax exempt corporation whose Board of Directors and members are Rotarians of Brooklyn, Queens, and Nassau County in New York, and members of local ethnic organizations.

On Sunday, September 22, 2019 We will be raising funds so we can add to the over 35,000 children saved so far by Gift of Life since the very first GOL child, Grace Angwaru from Uganda in 1975.

You can help by making a donation here right now. Please come join us! There will be music, prizes and refreshments.

Click on register to donate.

Registration opens at 9:30 am, walk begins at 11:00 am

(Rain date is 9/29/19)

"When you heal the heart of a child, you heal the heart of the world".
