About This Activity

Last year, as our son Myles underwent his fourth heart surgery, we organized a virtual 5k superhero run.  We asked our friends and family who particpated to post pictures of themselves during the day, which kept our spirits up as Myles was in surgery, and also gave him some fun pictures and videos to watch as he recovered.

This event was very theraputic for us and raised over $4000 with proceeds benefiting the Saving tiny Hearts Society, an organization created by a Mom & Dad of a child like Myles, who was born with a complex congenital heart defect.  Their mission is raising seed money for grossly under-funded, lifesaving grass roots research of congenital heart defects (CHD’s).

We are hopeful that we can double participation and fundraising this year through an actual 5k Fun Run/Walk - superhero attire GREATLY appreciated.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 through runners and corporate sponsorship, and to have 300+ runners participate.

Please join us on Saturday, September 3rd, 2016 at Al Lease Park.  Race welcoming ceremony begins at 9:00AM with the race kickoff promptly at 9:30.

From the bottom of our hearts, and that of our tiny heart superhero, we thank you for you donation and participation.
