Nearly 1,200 people came together on March 6 at Cullen Park for the second annual Superhero Heart Run! That’s 1,200 people who donned superhero capes and ran, walked and flew for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness.

Heart Heroes, Inc. and Mended Little Hearts of Houston are incredibly grateful to everyone who helped make the second annual Superhero Heart Run such a tremendous success. Because of you, we brought in over $50,000!!! Funds raised at this event go to helping Mended Little Hearts of Houston fund their Bravery Bag program and family support events, as well help Heart Heroes, Inc. fulfill their mission to provide support for heart families through the Heart Hero Cape program, family support events and funding for CHD research.

Thank you for your support and participation and for everything you do to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Don’t forget our sponsors! We thank them for their support in making this event such a success!
