hearts for adi


Welcome to the Hearts for Adi 5K run/1.5 Mile Walk page! We are a not-for-profit organization that is raising money to help out families with sick children in the NICU/PICU units located in the Children's Hospital of Central Illinois.

Our sweet Adilynn Jo was born with a heart condition known as Truncus Arteriosis. She had open heart, reconstructive surgery at only 4 days old. During Adi's stay in the hospital, her family was blessed by complete strangers who donated items including meals to the family while in the NICU/PICU waiting areas. Adi passed on September 7th, 2013 at only 22 days old, after a warrior like fight. Our organization will celebrate the life of Adi by helping others, in their time of need, in memory of her.

We will use the money raised to help other families of children located in NICU/PICU units by providing them with meals, meal cards, fuel cards, stuffed animals and many other acts of kindness that the staff of the hospital will be able to provide us insight on. Please help us in our goal to brighten the lives of families in their time of hardship.
