Start for the Heart was created in the Summer of 2007 and is a nonprofit organization designed help fund medical services to underprivileged children with heart disease in North Carolina through an annual fitness competition. This year, we'll be donating all of our proceeds to North Carolina Children's Heart Center at UNC Hospitals. All money raised goes directly to providing healthcare for children with heart disease in North Carolina. By alleviating the financial burden for patients, Start for the Heart will improve healthcare access and reduce health disparities for children of all ages, races, ethnicities, and religions.
