Hayden’s Heart Monthly Beat
Hayden’s Heart 5th Annual 5K Re-cap
What a great turnout for our 5th annual 5K Birthday Bash for Hayden- despite the freezing cold! We were humbled by yet again a packed park full of sponsors, vendors, food, kid activities, runners, walkers, strollers, high school teams, family, friends, heart warriors, heart mamas- all there supporting our mission- Hayden’s legacy.
Because of the cold, we had less people register the day of the event than years prior, but regardless, there were still over 500 participants, over 50 kids in the Fun Run, and around 650 people braving the cold, celebrating a very special boy.
In addition to celebrating Hayden’s 5th birthday, we also honored heart warrior sisters- 4 year old Aylin and 8 month old Isabella Conil- of North Bergen, New Jersey- both with a CHD called Tetralogy of Fallot. We were honored to have their parents Julio and Yenni participating and expressing their gratitude for the support given and we hope the proceeds from the event will assist them in their journey!
Thank you again to all who played a part in making this event amazing!!

On June 9th, the New Jersey tournament is teaming up with ‘Madison Strong’ – coined after a brave baby girl who was born with HRHS- Hypo-plastic Right Heart Syndrome- which is even more rare than HLHS. Madison Cohen was placed on the transplant list at just one month old but tragically passed away at two months old while waiting for her new heart. Madison’s parents, Matt and Stephanie Cohen, reside in Hoboken New Jersey. We are honored to team up with this incredible family and honor Hayden and Madison, as well as heart warrior Shea Oldenburger from Washington Township, NJ. Please check out our website and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
On Friday, July 28, we are hosting our 5th annual Golf Tournament at White Deer Golf Course to honor Jude Solderich from Allentown, PA. Jude was born in July 2016 with a heart defect and was placed on the transplant list at only three and a half months old. It is with your support and donations that help us help families like Jude.
