The 11th Annual Walk with the Heart of a Child presented by Scott Menke is set for Saturday, Feb. 22 at Fashion Show Mall and supports Nevada-based Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF). The walk begins at 8 a.m. with registration at 7 a.m.
Walk with the Heart of a Child is a high-energy celebration including a 3k walk, entertainment, raffle and the ever popular Kids Zone. During this event, teams gather at the Fashion Show Mall to walk in celebration and remembrance of children with heart conditions and to unite the community through awareness. More than 1,400 locals support the walk each year to help generate funds that allow CHF to continue to carry out its programs, including Camp Mend-a-Heart, Smart Heart Scholarships, Family Outreach, research and more.
“Coming together as a community and supporting Children’s Heart Foundation allows us to improve our heart families’ lives and walk with them through their journey,” said Walk Chairperson and Heart Mom Lyn Acebo. “Gather your family and friends and logon to www.chfn.org to sign up as a team for the walk and make a difference in the life of a heart child.”
On-line registration is available now at www.chfn.org. Fees are $25 for adults, $15 for virtual walkers, active-duty military, students and seniors. Donate $50 for a new VIP package including a CHF bag, water bottle, t-shirt, walk medal and raffle tickets. Community members and businesses interested in supporting CHF may phone (702) 967-3522 for sponsorship and team registration information.
