So, I found out that I have an auto-immune disease of my spine, and I decided the best way to fight it, was to get healthy and start exercising and eating right. In doing that, I have started running some, and this Saturday, June 14th, I will be running in the Superhero 5K at Keeneland in Lexington. The race it to benefit the organization Kerrington's Heart. See below for an excerpt from the Kerrington's Heart website about who they are and what they do. If you are interested in donating to my fundraiser for Kerrington's Heart, please click here! Any donation, large or small is greatly appreciated!!!
- Kerrington’s Heart is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides a wide variety of support to children affected by heart disease and their families. We strive to assist patients and families through each step in their journey of dealing with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). We offer comfort packages, Certificates of Bravery, educational support and financial assistance to families in need of meals, fuel and lodging. We also offer a variety of craft activities and hospital room decorations to further encourage the children during their stay at the hospital.
- Our “Heart to Heart” mom’s meetings are offered quarterly and provide an outlet for CHD mothers to connect with each other.
- By financially supporting the Children’s Heart Foundation, we participate in work to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of CHD.
- We are a proud sponsor of the Beads of Courage program at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital and Congenital Heart Clinic. This program enables children to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.
