“Having Muscular Dystrophy myself, I know the feeling of wanting to live a normal life,” said Charlie Floege, President.  “Fortunately, I have done everything that I can to let this disease from keeping me from living a full life and enjoying my favorite sport.  I hope to do the same for these children and their families.”

Helping Kids Makes Our Hearts Race is a 501c3 non-profit volunteer organization, founded in 2009 by Founder, Bill 13588954_879130375564484_1412277183_oMontgomery (a.k.a.

Helping Kids Makes Our Heart Race makes these experiences possible through your generous donations, volunteers and partners.
