Heart Heroes, Inc. Mission: To provide support to children and families affected by Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) through the distribution of superhero capes, programs to offer hope and funding for CHD research.
What began as a community project to send personalized superhero capes to comfort and empower children born with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) has expanded to provide family and grief support, CHD education, CHD research grants and a series of Superhero Heart Runs throughout the U.S. Heart Hero Capes have traveled to every state in the U.S. and over 30 countries worldwide. Heart Heroes plays an active role in the Omaha community, with its 5th Annual Superhero Heart Run scheduled for this September at Werner Park. Family Support Events are held throughout the year and support baskets are delivered to families during hospital stays.
