For the second year Team HopeHeartStrong will be riding strong for little hearts. Help us raise the heart rate at the Philly Spin -in and raise money for congenital heart defects. We spin for the kids!
Why We Spin:
- Little hearts need us: Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has congenital heart disease.” More than one million babies are born each year with congenital heart disease.
- Breakthroughs are upon us: “I can’t think of anything more important than taking a child who has a fatal heart disease and getting them through to live to be a grandparent,” says Matthew Gillespie, MD, Interventional Cardiologist. “We have in recent years made incredible important breakthroughs that nobody else has had in some of the most important issues affecting our patients. We really need the support of philanthropy to make that possible.”
How Can You Help:
By donating and helping us support the little hearts through ground breaking and innovative research here at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
“From the bottom of all the hearts we touch, from the bottom of all the hearts we work on, from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you.”
