Your Child’s Precious Heart – Our Promise

Please consider running to support the Cardiac Center at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Your registration with Nemours for the Delaware Marathon Running Festival means you share our hope of helping tiny hearts grow strong and healthy so that our kids can run these races alongside of us someday! You can help make a difference to the patients and families served at Nemours. How? Let us tell you.

The Nemours Cardiac Center, based at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., is a national leader in pediatric cardiac care. We specialize in children’s heart disease, from the simplest to the most complex. From before birth through the teen years, your child can get all of the services related to heart care here at the Nemours Cardiac Center — in one place, at one time.

At the Nemours Cardiac Center, what truly sets us apart is our personalized, family-centered approach. We recognize that you and your child will experience challenges as you embark on this journey. We’ll be with you every step of the way, helping you understand and cope with your child’s diagnosis and treatment, and assisting you with the complexities throughout your child’s care.
