A baby girl and her parents started it all in 2009... since then we have given care packages to over 50 families and have raised over $40,000.00, all of which has been given to local hard working people who have found themselves in a awful situation.
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 8th ANNUAL BABIES HEART RUN was held on Sunday, August 21st, 2016 at FITCH HIGH SCHOOL in Groton. Registration began at 9 am, the run took off at noon. $16,000.00 was raised!!! During registration we had our annual BHR Car Show. 98.7 WNLC broadcasted live, Mike's Famous Harley Davidson, 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 were set up! 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 more live music by NO SHAME rocking the house! ZIG ZAG Sewing was set up there as well, with raffles, and FANTASTIC food provided by Christopher's.
All the proceeds from the event will 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.
To all our brothers who never made it home from their last ride... we will never forget you & will remember you at the Babies Heart Run from this year forward... May you Rest In Peace.
