To stimulate & magnify the awareness for prevention of Cardiac diseases in our Nation and to help the children who are/will be suffering from Cardiac diseases, Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children (BJWHC) in association with Shri Siddhivinayak Ganapati Temple Trust organizes the Little Hearts marathon annually in the month of February.
The marathon aims to engage the community to participate in a healthy and fun event, which will help raise the much-needed funds for setting up a cardiac center at BJWHC and in return reduce the costs and waiting time for Cardiac surgeries in our community.
Today, the unhealthy lifestyles that lead to cardiovascular disease often begin in childhood and adolescence, so that prevention of heart disease must begin there. The need of the hour is to promote healthy diets & physical activity amongst the new generation and provide a second chance to children who are already suffering from heart diseases.
Join our 2nd annual "Little Hearts marathon" for spreading awareness on prevention of cardiac diseases and to help us raise funds for a dedicated cardiac centre for disadvantaged children in our community who are suffering from cardiac diseases.
Running for the marathon gives you an immense opportunity to change lives and give back to the community.
Aid young hearts, aid young India!. .

Your contribution will help a child run on your behalf.So if you cannot make it to the marathon for some reason or the other, make sure your presence is felt by contributing a run!
