We are organizing a RUN dubbed as "2 Hearts to Beat - One Run, Two Lives", or simply called ‘2H2B’, to be held on October 14, 2012 at Cebu I.T. Park at 5am. 2H2B is an event organized by a group of volunteers inspired to help raise funds for the open heart surgery of Baby Gabrielle and the post-op expenses of Baby Maven.

Baby Maven, the 8-month old child of Kristoffer Dominic and Hannah Almira Amora, and baby Gabrielle, the 9-month old child of Michael Pacaña and Joann Pearl Pacaña, are both suffering from Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a congenital heart defect which is classically understood to involve four anatomical abnormalities (although only three of them are always present). It is the most common cyanotic heart defect, and the most common cause of blue baby syndrome. Baby Maven has already undergone the total correction through open heart surgeries in Manila and that cost around P800,000 to P1M while Baby Gabrielle is still set hopefully once we have finished with the RUN.

The main objective of 2 Hearts to Beat (2H2B) RUN is to help raise funds for the said open heart surgeries and post-op that these little warriors will undergo. The event also aims to raise awareness of congenital heart diseases of young infants that most of these defects are treatable given the proper care and funds. Timing is critical and parents with babies that have been diagnosed with TOF congenital heart defects are advised to have total correction within 6 months to 1 year of life. Research shows that early complete TOF repairs have low mortality rate with less complications.

The 2H2B RUN is moving with the plan and we would want you to be part of it by informing the public of the event and our cause. Your help will surely help us a long, long way for these babies.
