WE ARE THE BABIES HEART RUN!
The purpose of the BABIES HEART RUN is to raise money for parents who have babies that are in Neonatal Intensive Care Units or children that are in the Pediatric Intensive Care Units, who do not otherwise qualify for assistance. It is hard enough when parents have to worry about their babies because they are sick but to add on the extra expenses of gas, food, parking and unexpected medical bills makes it even worse. This run was started to assist people with these expenses while their children are in the NICU or PICU. The Babies Heart Run is a Non Profit Organization (501c3).
The 7th ANNUAL BABIES HEART RUN was held on Sunday, August 16th, 2015 at FITCH HIGH SCHOOL in Groton. Registration began at 9 am, the run started at noon. During registration we had 98.7 WNLC, Mike's Famous, New London Waterford Speedbowl, ZIG ZAG Sewing, The Roaming Railroad, April's Balloons, Simply Enchanted, Sally Doodles, The Art Truck and dozens of other vendors! The local band AZALEA DRIVE performed through out the registration and did a kick ass job!
The after party was held at Christopher's Cafe on Poquonnock Road in Groton. The back parking lot was be tented with more live music by SPECIAL 20 rocking the house! There was pizza from The Rolling Tomato, ZIG ZAG Sewing, raffles, and FANTASTIC food provided by Christopher's.
All the proceeds from the event go to create BHR care packages that benefit local families who have babies at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital NICU, Yale New Haven Hospital Newborn Special Care Unit, Yale New Haven Pediatric Intensive Care Unit & other hospitals around the country.
