I am running the Philadelphia Gore Tex Half Marathon this November in order to raise funds that will be used to support pediatric cardiac survival research programs.
My little brother, Joseph, was born in 2005 with a serious congenital heart defect. He has undergone two heart surgeries and now–even though he has only one single ventricle–he is doing great! I have learned that there are many, many children out there just like my brother. Twice as many children die each year from congenital heart defects than from all forms of pediatric cancer combined. Please help me to raise funds so that Big Hearts to Little Hearts can continue to support research that gives Joseph and so many other kids hope for a future.
