PLANET HEART at the CONGENITAL HEART WALK!
Magical Hearts Come to Life at the Inaugural Children’s
Heart Foundation Walk!
Scottsdale, AZ (June 8, 2010) – From the inventor of the heart-hand connection called the HeartMarkTM comes a whole new invention—a line of magical hearts unlike any you have ever seen! These new hearts will be unveiled at the first annual Congenital Heart Walk at the Tempe Diablo Stadium November 7th, 2010. Artist and inventor Tali Lehavi designed these special hearts to have incredible magical powers. Lehavi will reveal some of these special powers at the craft table for the Congenital Heart Walk on Sunday, at 8am.
Artist and inventor Lehavi has been studying the geometry of hearts full time since she graduated from UC Berkeley “many years ago.” Lehavi invented, patented, and trademarked the heart-hand connectionTM which is called the HeartMark.TM She has been using the HeartMark to teach people to connect to themselves, each other, and the environment. Lehavi has been teaching and publishing books about HeartMark Yogalates, HeartMark Health, and children’s stories about the HeartMark. She designs cartoon characters, jewelry, and room decor that connect by making this special heart between them. It is this dedication to hearts that led Lehavi to support the Congential Heart Walk.
The Congenital Heart Walk 2010 is a joint fundraising effort between the Children’s Heart Foundation and the Adult Congenital Heart Association. The Walk is free to attend, but any donations are tax deductible. Funds raised will help research for congenital heart challenges. Lehavi is going to lead children through unique crafts with hearts, such as building Heart Mandalas. The special powers of her unique hearts will be revealed at this event. In addition, the event will have bouncy houses, free food, a dance performance, carnival games, prizes, and Yippee Yoga classes for children.
Registering is free. People may sign up at the event from 8am Sunday morning at the Tempe Diablo Stadium, or online at http://congenitalheartwalk.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=429992. Lehavi has formed Team Planet Heart, so you can register to walk one mile with team Planet Heart. The walk is family and stroller friendly. For those who cannot attend, the website also accepts donations as small as $5 or higher. Planet Heart hopes to see you there!
