The Children's Heart Group provides care to children from several underserved areas throughout the world. With the help of Variety Club International Lifeline Program and the Rotary Club, we have provided open heart surgery to many children from Colombia, Honduras, and Ecuador at no charge to their families. This is the only hope of treatment for these children. Without surgery, they have little chance of reaching adulthood.
The Hershey run was an offshoot of the third annual "Rotary-Law-Enforcement Gift of Life 1,000- Mile Walk/Run" That began Sept. 11 in Evanston Ill., and will end Sept. 30 at the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park, N.Y. The event is designed to bring national attention to the Gift of Life Program.
