Crystal Smith has a child who was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and says she helped organize this event to bring the community together.
"We had families that came that actually has children pass away, so it was for our heart warriors and our heart survivors. It makes you appreciate everyday you have with your child," says Smith.
