On March 18, we were proud to sponsor Hayden’s Heart 5th Annual 5K. The race was a huge success thanks to all of the other sponsors and participants who came out to show support and raise congenital heart defect (CHD) awareness. Hayden’s Heart helps families in their time of need with this years proceeds benefiting Aylin Conil and Family of North Bergen.
The event was held at Riverside County Park in Lyndhurst. While the race continues to be the highlight of the event, each year there are activities for children, lunch, and a birthday celebration in memory of Hayden.
Our Metropolitan Pain Consultants booth proved to be very popular with participants. At our booth, we offered free bags and a chance to enter an iPad Mini raffle. Today we are happy to announce the Hayden’s Heart iPad Mini winner is Dorreen Kelichner.
We’d like to thank each person who stopped by our booth and those who came out to support Hayden’s Heart. While congenital heart disease is an uphill battle, raising awareness and supporting families like the Conils helps. If you would like to get involved in Hayden’s Heart, please see the following below.
Joining Hayden’s Heart:
If you would like to support Hayden’s Heart, there are plenty of ways to do so. Monetary donations are always appreciated but you can also donate your time; which is just as important and needed. By volunteering your time to help raise awareness for CHD, word will continue to spread to others and that is ultimately what we are after.
Hayden’s Heart continues to grow and evolve all due in part to volunteers. Their fundraising team hosts events, helps at hosted events in their area, and involves public schools in raising CHD awareness. You can email Hayden’s Heart to find out more information.
Furthermore, spread the word and raise awareness by liking and sharing their Facebook page.
