Little Heart Warriors Non-Profit was created by a group of mothers with children with severe Congenital Heart Defects. We want to share our story with others and educate our community, as well as pay it forward to help as many families during their own journey with Congenital Heart Disease. With 40,000 CHD babies born each year, CHD is the #1 birth defect in the United States. Because of all our supporters, this will be our 6th annual 5K and 1K Family Fun Run. We can not thank you enough and are looking forward to seeing you all soon. Thank you for helping us pay it forward and make a difference one step at a time!
