About This Activity

Thank you for joining our family to remember Gunnar, as he passed away at 12 days old, due to a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) called Truncus Arteriosis. This race will be the weekend of his 1st Birthday! We know it's not socially acceptable to celebrate the passing of precious babies, however, we want to raise CHD Awareness. Many babies are not prenatally diagnosed and are put in potential life threating situations. The funds will be used to make improvements to Paran Baptist Church Cemetery, where Gunnar is laid to rest. It’s a very old cemetery that has been around since the late 1800’s.
