Team VKB Runs for Harlynn's Heart

On November 22nd, 2014, our daughter Violet Kaye Buchholz was born without a heartbeat and swiftly entered the arms of our Lord. She was welcomed by her twin, who we lost around 7 weeks. Our fundraising efforts are in honor of our babies. We hope to continuosly touch the lives of others with each dollar we raise, which is why we're choosing to support Harlynn's Heart in this year's Fargo Marathon.

Harlynn's Heart Mission: 
From the dark valleys to the sunny peaks, Harlynn's Heart spreads love, support and hope to families.
