Little Hearts Marathon
To stimulate & magnify the awareness for prevention of Cardiac diseases across Nation and offer subsidized treatment to children who are suffering from Cardiac diseases, Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children (BJWHC) organizes the Little Hearts Marathon annually. The first 4 editions of Little Hearts Marathon in Mumbai have been a grand success and the event has gained huge popularity amongst the children and parents in Mumbai.
Why Little Hearts Marathon?
Today, the unhealthy & redundant lifestyles lead to cardiovascular diseases which often begin in childhood and adolescence, so the prevention of heart disease must begin at an early age. 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.
How will it benefit the society?
The marathon aims to engage the community to participate in a healthy and fun event, which will help raise the much-needed funds for the Modernized equipments and cardiac surgeries etc for the newly inaugurated Pediatric Cardiac Centre at Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children and in return reduce the costs and waiting time for underprivileged kids who are in the need of a cardiac surgery.
