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 5th ANNUAL BABIES HEART RUN was held on Sunday, August 18th, 2013 at FITCH HIGH SCHOOL in Groton.  Registration began at 9 am, the run started at noon. The first 100 participants received a free t shirt. There was also a Classic Car event again.  During registration there was various activities for kids going on such as face painting provided by Sally Doodles, train rides provided by the Roaming Railroad, and Rapunzel was signing autographs which was provided by Simply Enchanted. BHR merchandise was sold. We had over 10 different 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 NO SHAME and SPECIAL 20 rockin the house. Vendors were in the front parking lot of Christopher's. The Rolling Tomato, Braydens Farm, Ben & Jerrys, Zig Zag Sewing, and VETS Club Poker Run!!! Participants enjoyed delicious food all donated by CHRISTOPHERS CAFE!  Inside the bar was open, and BHR merchandise was for sale along with raffles!!!
 
THE GRAND TOTAL RAISED WAS $16,000.00  

All the proceeds went to create BHR care packages that benefited local families who have babies at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital NICU, Yale New Haven Hospital Newborn Special Care Unit & other hospitals around the country.
