Walkin' and Rollin'

Last weekend, Team Zoe showed up big for the Congenital Heart Walk in Tempe, Arizona. There were about three times the amount of participants from last year's Inaugural walk and Team Zoe raised nearly $10,000 for Congenital Heart Defect/Disease education and research.


Last year, Zoe wasn't able to attend the walk since she was only a month post-op. This year was a very different story. Zoe not only showed up, but walked. And walked, and walked, and walked. She loved being outside and running around with her fellow heart families.

Zoe met many of her fans whom she's not had the opportunity to meet previously. It was wonderful and a blessing to be able to "show her off"!

At the end of the walk, I got a picture of Emmy and Zoe crossing the finish line together.  For whatever reason, Emmy decided to run the last few meters.


And for those of you who couldn't make it in person but were cheering us on from afar, here are some pictures from the fun-filled morning.

Thank you, everyone, for making this year's walk BIGGER and BETTER than we could've hoped. We couldn't have done it without all of your love and support.
