DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - On September 23rd, thousands will descend on Downtown Dayton to participate in the 2017 Greater Dayton 5K Heart Walk/Run, including a group of Heart Heroes.

Each year, the Dayton chapter of the American Heart Association selects someone to be an ambassador for the event, including children or adults. Each one has battled a heart defect. Their stories are meant to inspire.
