The 2nd Annual Remembering Gunnar has 4 purposes:
1. To Remember Gunnar, my son, he passed at 12 days old due to surgery complications from a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) on 1/31/2015.
2. To raise CHD Awareness. CHD's are often not prenatally diagnosed; states do not require testing before discharge of newborns. A baby is born with a CHD every 15 minutes.
3. To raise funds for Paran Baptist Foundation Mutual Fund for PBCC.
4. To encourage and active lifestyle. As a veteran of 20 years, I love to see people up and moving!
