Addi's Cupcake Trot 5K
Addi’s Cupcake Trot is a 5K run/walk that is organized every year to raise money for The Heart Institute of Aurora, Colorado Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) Tissue Bank, for rejection research under the guidance of Dr. Miyamoto. Addison Scott was a little girl who lived with her family in Fruita, Colorado. She was born in 2008 with HLHS, and underwent four open heart surgeries in her short life. She went into heart failure in September 2012, received a heart transplant on September 30th, and passed away because her body rejected the heart 15 days later. November 25, 2012, would have been her 4th birthday. Addi was a special girl with an incredible smile and spunky personality who could light up any room! She told her parents once that she “loved them more than cupcakes” and that is how this event got its name.
