Heart & Stroke – Hearts & Minds: “Why I Fundraise”

Haleigh was featured in the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s Heart and Minds June 2012 Newsletter Here is an excerpt of the story.

Haleigh Miklic is just 7-years-old, but age doesn’t deter her from having an impact. As Haleigh explains, she is helping to “fix broken hearts.” As an infant, Haleigh herself was diagnosed with a ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis, and successfully underwent open heart surgery to repair her heart. Sadly, her family was soon hit hard again by cardiovascular tragedy when her father suffered a heart attack and died at age 38.

Today, Haleigh is driven to help other families touched by cardiovascular disease, by participating in JUMP Rope for Heart and fundraising for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. She surpassed her goal of $2,000 in 2012, and hopes to raise $3,000 in 2013. “It’s important to other people’s families and it feels good.”
