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 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 there babies are in the NICU.
The 6th ANNUAL BABIES HEART RUN will be held on Sunday, August 17th, 2014 at FITCH HIGH SCHOOL in Groton. Registration begins at 930 am, the run starts at noon. There is a Classic Car event as well. During registration there are various activities for kids going on such as face painting, train rides, balloons and much more! BHR merchandise will be sold. We have over 15 additional vendors. The local band AZALEA DRIVE will perform through out the registration.
The after party is held at Christopher's Cafe on Poquonnock Road in Groton. The back parking lot is tented with SPECIAL 20 and NO SHAME rocking the house! Join us at the after gathering for music, food, raffles and a great time!
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 & other hospitals around the country.
