The Superhero Heart Run is the nation's first superhero-themed family-friendly fun run specifically committed to raising awareness, support, and funding for kids with congenital heart defects (CHD). Heart Heroes, Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated providing superhero capes to kids born with congenital heart defects. Heart Heroes, Inc is partnering with Help-A-Heart, a nonprofit founded in Iowa that provides financial assistance & emotional support to Iowa families of children born with CHD's, to host the 6th Annual Superhero Heart Run in Des Moines. The run will be at Raccoon River Sports Complex in West Des Moines on Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 12 PM – 4 PM.

Your participation will help raise awareness for CHD. Funds raised will be used to not only provide superhero capes to CHD kids throughout the country through Heart Heroes, but provides family support events and activities as well as funding for research and education.
