The Wild Hearts Fun Run Superhero 5K is the largest public fundraiser for Kerrington’s Heart Inc.
Our mission is to provide education, encouragement and hope, while creating a network of support for the families and caregivers of children with heart disease.
We strive to assist patients and families through each step in their journey of dealing with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). We offer comfort bags, certificates of bravery, educational support and financial assistance to families in need of meals, fuel and lodging.
We also offer a variety of craft activities and hospital room decorations to further encourage the children during their stay at the hospital.
Our “Heart to Heart” mom’s meetings are offered quarterly throughout Kentucky and provide an outlet for CHD mothers to connect with each other.
By financially supporting research and development, we participate in work to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of CHD.
We are also a proud sponsor of the Beads of Courage program at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital. This program enables children to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.
