1st Annual Miles 4 Myles Superhero 5k (Virtual Run)

Tue August 11, 2015 Kent, OH 44240 US



Kent, OH US 44240


On August 11th, 4 year old Myles will be undergoing his 4th open heart surgery.  In his honor, his parents are requesting a 5k run with proceeds to benefit the Saving tiny Hearts Society.

In addition to raising money for CHD research, his parents are hopeful that seeing pictures posted throughout the day on the Miles for Myles Superhero 5k Virtual Run Facebook page, they will gain much needed strength and support during the hours while their son is in surgery.  

Myles was born with a rare congenital heart defect called Double Inlet Left Ventricle (DILV).  He is a spunky 4 year old who loves superheroes.  Mommy and Daddy have prepped him for surgery by telling him that he is going to get his heart worked on like Iron Man, so that he can run faster and longer.
