The Mater Heart Run was started in 2002 as the main fundraising avenue for the Cardiac program. Initially held only in Nairobi, the Heart Run has grown over the years and is now held in NINE (9) different towns; Nairobi, Mombasa, Machakos, Mumias, Meru, Kisumu, Nyeri, Eldoret and Nakuru The main Objective of the Mater Heart Run is to fundraise for the cardiac program. The cardiac program was started in 1995 to cater for children who cannot afford the surgery and the first open-heart surgery was performed in 1996. This was in line with the Values of the Sisters of Mercy, which emphasize on compassion for all and seek to uplift the lives of the under privileged in society. To date over 3000 heart procedures have been performed courtesy of the support from well-wishers. Most of these surgeries were done at Mater Misericordiae hospital by Kenyan doctors, with a few being referred overseas or done by visiting Cardiologists.

Join this noble cause and Touch a Child’s Heart during this year’s Mater Heart Run happening at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi Kenya on 25th May 2019.
