A Heart Like Ava 5K Run/Walk


The 6th Annual AHLA 5K will take place on November 9, 2019 in Gallipolis, Ohio. We would love for you to join us and help make this the most successful year so far! This year, proceeds from the race will again be donated to the Congenital Catheterization Research Collaborative and will directly help fund the research being conducted by Ava's primary cardiologist/interventional cardiologist, Dr. Bryan Goldstein. 


We will be celebrating Ava's 6th birthday at the 5K by collecting toys which will be donated to CCHMC for inpatient children spending their holidays in the hospital. Keep in mind that CCHMC treats children of all ages. Please avoid stuffed animals as those are not acceptable by the hospital.  Each toy donated will give you an entry into our "Favorite Local Things" basket.
