You Have the Power to Save the Day for Congenital Heart Defects! Get ready, Iowa! Superheroes are coming back to Des Moines on Sunday, October 23, 2016! Please join Help-a-Heart and Heart Heroes, Inc. at Racoon River Park for the 3rd Annual Superhero Heart Run! The Superhero Heart Run is the nation's first and only superhero-themed, family-friendly 5k/2k event specifically committed to raising awareness, support, and funding for kids and families affected by Congenital Heart Defects (CHD).
People everywhere are suiting up in their superhero gear and commemorative capes to create the most highly-visible event that ever existed for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness. Your participation and fundraising will help raise much needed funds and awareness for CHD. Proceeds raised from this event will be utilized to provide support, education, research and create awareness for Congenital Heart Defects, the most common birth defect. Families in Iowa will benefit directly through the programs and services provided by Help-a-Heart and Heart Heroes, Inc.
Help-A-Heart has a mission dedicated to sharing love by providing emotional and financial support for Iowa families affected by CHD. Since 2006, Help-A-Heart has provided over 150 Iowa heart families with more than $100,000 in financial support, so they can focus on caring for the needs of their child during a hospitalization. Please visit www.help-a-heart.org for more information on this incredible organization.
Heart Heroes, Inc.’s mission is to provide support to children and families affected by Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) through the distribution of superhero capes, programs to offer hope, and funding for CHD research.
