About This Activity

Heart Heroes, Inc. is launching the Superhero Heart Run, a nationwide 5k run experience to raise widespread awareness, support, and funding for Congenital Heart Defects!  Families everywhere have told us that we need more awareness for CHD. This event will steal the hearts of people across the country and spread massive awareness for CHD.  After all, who doesn’t love dressing up like their favorite superhero?! The bravery and resilience that our CHD Heart Heroes exhibit is nothing short of amazing. They deserve to be honored, celebrated, and revered.

People everywhere will be suiting up in their superhero gear and commemorative capes to create the most highly-visible event that ever existed for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness. Heart Heroes is actively partnering with national and local CHD organizations to act in a collaborative effort to bring about participation in this event. From Honolulu to Portland, Maine and everywhere in between, children with CHD and their families will be recognized through this event!

Your participation will help raise awareness for CHD.  Funds raised will be used to equip Heart Heroes everywhere with superhero Heart Hero capes, in addition to providing desperately needed family support, education, and funding of CHD medical research projects.
