This Saturday, 177 runners and walkers of all ages joined the 335 Heart Foundation crew for a morning of fun at McAlpine Creek Park in Charlotte, NC for the 3rd Annual Heart of a Warrior 5k. This year, we ran for Sadie. Sadie lived only a few short weeks, but her impact on the world shows in the commitment of her parents to do good to honor their daughter's life. Team Sadie earned the top fundraising award for the year with over $2,160 raised! Their fundraising alone helps 86 families with the cost of food! Thank you, Team Sadie, for the dedication and hard work!
Over 250 people in all joined in on the festivities and learned more about Congenital Heart Defects, won some great raffle prizes, did a few crafts with the kids and wore out the youngsters on the huge bounce house and slide!
Below are some pictures and a video courtesy of Taylor Powell Photography in Charlotte. Thank you to all who came out - both participants, volunteers and the general public! We look forward to start planning next year's event!
