On Sunday 24th of September 2023 I will be running the Berlin Marathon in support of Chain of Hope and Abbott’s Little Heroes Program.
I’m a keen runner, and have previously completed a few marathons, including the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon in Cape Town. I have always wanted to complete one of the World Marathon Majors and feel so privileged to finally have the chance to do it and support such great causes!
I work as a Therapy Specialist for Structural Heart devices at Abbott since April 2022. Working for Abbott and providing support during procedures for adults and children with congenital heart defects is incredibly rewarding, and I hope that by raising funds during the marathon it will provide help to even more children who don’t have access to these necessary treatments.
Below please find links to Chain of Hope and Little Heroes for more information about these fantastic organizations.
“Since 1996, Chain of Hope has been working towards our long-term goal that all children, wherever they are born, have access to quality cardiac care in their own countries.”
“With Little Heroes, Abbott supports children with congenital heart defects in developing countries, where there is no access to healthcare. Abbott provides life-changing technologies and additional support for children that do not have access to healthcare. With this program Abbott wants to give these children the chance to grow up and reach their full potential.”
Any donation of support you are willing to contribute is greatly appreciated and will help both organizations continue their incredible work!
Thank you, Chantal
