Kinder Key Heart Warrior :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Honor Your Heart Warrior by Sharing Their Story!

Sometimes superheroes reside in the hearts of small children who have fought big battles. 


Avery, 2015 Heart Warrior


To help raise awareness and raise funds for the Heart Center of Nationwide Children's Hospital, we will share inspiring heart warrior stories leading up to Kinder Key’s annual Denim & Diamonds event on April 22nd. One child will be honored as Kinder Key’s 2017 Heart Warrior.


What is a Heart Warrior?

The Heart Warrior will be featured in various event promotional materials and asked to attend the event with their family to be honored at Denim & Diamonds. The event takes place on Saturday, April 22nd from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. at the Grand Event Center in Grandview Yard. Of course, the Heart Warrior does not need to attend the event in its entirety but will be asked to be a part of the evenings program.

How does a child become a Heart Warrior?

Only a parent or guardian of the child is permitted to fill out the form and share details about the child’s diagnosis, personal story and why they would make an excellent Heart Warrior. All information will remain confidential until patient stories have been vetted through the Nationwide Children's Hospital and the Heart Center. Parents will be required to sign an Authorization Form for Public Disclosure of Underage Patient Information before the child’s story is submitted for consideration by Kinder Key.

To nominate your child or tell your story, fill out the form on this page and make sure to select the "Heart  Warrior" check box.
