Take part in 14th annual Walk with the Heart of a Child at Fashion Show Mall

Each year, 1 in 100 or 40,000 children in the United States are born with a congenital heart defect, making these defects the leading cause of illness and death in the first year of life.

Aiming to raise both awareness and much need funding to fight what can be a deadly pediatric disease, Children's Heart Foundation invites all Las Vegans to participate in the 14th Annual Walk with the Heart of a Child on Saturday, Feb. 25.

This annual fun walk through Fashion Show (3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South) allows participants to walk in celebration or in remembrance of the young lives affected by congenital heart defects throughout the Las Vegas community.

Kelly McClellan, Ricky Newsham and Deanna Paquette discuss the event.
