Please join us at the Help 2 Heal A Heart event at Griffiths Middle School in Downey California. This event is in memory of a child lost to cancer at age 13. His mother Kim created an organization called the Always a Mom Foundation. The foundation has partnered with Aztlan Athletics to raise funds for programs and services to help moms and families trying to overcome the passing of a child in the family. The event is also designed to promote wellness and your participation will not only help the Always a Mom Foundation, but will also provide you, your family and friends an opportunity to become healthier and more fit.

If you are unable to attend, please support the event by sending a donation of $20 to sponsor a student to participate at the event.
