Hey, my name is Ariel Acosta and on November 19th I'm running for Hailey's Hope Foundation. This foundation has personally helped me as my son Felix was born 2 and 1/2 months early. Originally he was a Monochrionic-Diamniotic twin but we lost his brother during the pregnancy. We spent 63 days in and out of the NICU visiting him till we were able to take him home on December 30th 2015.
I run in honor of my son and his brother that isn't with us today.
Hailey’s Hope Foundation is dedicated to helping meet the special needs of families and their babies both in the NICU and as they transition home. When it comes to helping these babies get well, there is nothing more powerful than a family’s love and support. By supporting families and creating a comfortable, family-centered environment in the NICU, we give critically ill babies better chances to grow healthy and strong and reach their developmental milestones
