Event Details: The Superhero Heart Run is the nation's only 5k/2k event aimed at raising awareness for Congenital Heart Defects! Last year's run saw over 6,000 caped crusaders coming together to "Save the Day for CHD" and raised over $275,000! This family-friendly event first launched in Omaha, NE in 2013 and has grown each year. Heart Heroes partners with local and national CHD organizations to bring this event to cities across the country. Proceeds raised from these events are utilized to provide support, education, research and create awareness for CHD, the most common birth defect worldwide.
