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 their babies are in the NICU.
The 6th ANNUAL BABIES HEART RUN was held on Sunday, August 17th, 2014 at FITCH HIGH SCHOOL in Groton. Registration began at 9 am, the run started at noon. There was a Classic Car event as well. During registration there were various activities for kids going on such as a train ride, Queen Elsa and much more! We have over 15 additional vendors. The local band AZALEA DRIVE performed through out the registration.
The after party was held at Christopher's Cafe on Poquonnock Road in Groton. The back parking lot was tented with SPECIAL 20 and NO SHAME rocking the house! There was a photo booth, pizza from The Rolling Tomato, raffles, vendors and FANTASTIC food provided by Chrisopher'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 & other hospitals around the country.
