This year's heart walk was a total success!
We were able to raise $2735!! How amazing is that?! Thank you to everyone who made a donation to the American Heart Association on our behalf. Because of your generosity we were the number one individual fundraiser for Sacramento! You guys are awesome!
No one was sick this year, I was able to run the 5k (the first time since we've been doing this walk), and Dan and the kids walked the entire one-mile loop with no stroller. We even had Grandma Kathy join us this year. The weather was perfect, warm but not too hot. We met up with lots of our Hearts of Hope friends in the VIP tent afterward. Of course Drew and Ava had to spend some quality time in the bounce house and walking around collecting samples, trinkets and paperwork from the various booths.
After the after-walk festivities we headed off to Fairy Tale Town for the UCD pediatric heart surgery reunion. The kids got to play and the generous folks from UCD provided a delicious bbq lunch for us. I got to meet a new heart mom with a little one with HLHS and reunite with a family that we met when Drew was in the NICU. What an amazing day...There is nothing like seeing a bunch of heart kids running around without a care in the world.
