Heart and Sole raises $30,000 for MCG's children's heart program

March 16, 2007

The MCG children's hospital received a big gift today thanks to some big hearts. The Children's Medical Center Heart Program was presented with $30,000 this afternoon.

It came thanks to the Heart and Sole fundraiser held earlier this month.

Organizers presented the check and thanked the many people who helped make the fundraiser a success.

One says this was a great way to make a difference.

"I was searching for a way to make a difference, and I didn't have the funds to write a check to MCG myself," Stacey Haskins said. "I prayed and found that I could raise the money and use time and turn that into the funds to help other children."

The fundraiser was held in the memory of Bowen McElreath, who lost her life to a heart condition nearly two years ago.
