Walk for Kids 2019 - Inland Empire

Sebastian

Welcome to our 2019 Walk for Kids team page!

On April 4,2011 our little boy name Sebastian Aiden Lopez was welcomed into the World. Weighing 8lbs. 3oz measuring 19 3\4long and crying none stop. Our journey had just begun! Our Sebastian was extremly critical in the Hospital and was fighting to stay alive as he was born with a heart defect called Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. He stayed in the Hospital until June 17,2011. During his stay he received 2 open heart surgeries, 10 blood tranfussions, trach, feeding tube and was in life support.

My family & I were directed to a home across the street from the Hospital we had never heard of "Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House". They welcomed us in with open arms. The home had become our home away from home! It brought much comfort knowing we could walk across the street from the Hospital into this home and take a nap, a shower, do laundry, pray, cook and have the support of the employees whom also prayed with us and lifted us up when we were down. 

Since 2011 my family has commited to register Team Sebastian each year. With the help of our family & friends Team Sebastian has raised money each year & walk the 5k not only for our son Sebastian but for all the children whom have been and are fighting to stay alive in the Hospital.
