Harboring Hearts sponsored the Legion of Hearts day at NYC's Mount Sinai Hospital in collaboration with the American Heart Association and Sephora recenty.
Pediatric heart patients and their family members joined Harboring Hearts co-founder Michelle Javian, philanthropist Sharon Bush, Skylar Brandt (winner of the 2013 Princess Grace Dance Fellowship Award) and volunteers of Mount Sinai's pediatric cardiology mentor program for the special day.
Super heroes save the day
Sephora makeup artists applied makeup and face paint to the patients and family members, turning them into super heroes for the day. Wonder Woman also made a special appearance and Sharon Bush provided teddy bears to the children, which brought joy to the morning, providing respite from their patients' daily medical routines.
Heart healthy meal
Families enjoyed a heart healthy breakfast and snacks as well as Zico Coconut Water, while participating in arts & crafts, which included designing their own capes to complete their super hero look.
