"We are thrilled with the result of our fundraiser and thankful for the generosity of our customers in Cincinnati and Dayton," said Mike Dahm, president of Mike's Carwash. "Pediatric heart disease affects so many families and we are honored to play a role in the life-changing work that the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s is doing.”
"We cannot thank everyone enough for their support and participation in the Mike’s Carwash Fundraiser last weekend,” said Dr. Andrew Redington, co-director of the Heart Institute. “Every single person who came out has helped us change the outcome for kids with heart disease!”
When a child is born with a heart defect or develops heart disease later in life, parents seek the best, most knowledgeable care possible. That's why families from across the nation and around the world choose the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children's.
The experts at the Heart Institute are transforming the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric heart disease by integrating clinical care, research, and education. Recognized as one of the best pediatric cardiology programs in the nation, Cincinnati Children's specialists and investigators are advancing innovative care and discovering new knowledge about the origins, progression, and treatment of heart disease-beginning at birth and well into adulthood.
