Heart and Sole, Inc. is a non-profit organization that benefits MCG Children’s Medical Center Heart Program. Heart and Sole was founded in September 2006 in memory of Margaret Bowen McElreath. In July 2005, Bowen was born with a special heart. At three days old, Bowen was transported to MCG Children’s Medical Center where she became a member of the Children’s Heart Program family. Our hope is that we can help every child that has a special heart for lifetimes to come!
