Charlotte Real Estate Talk: Julia Engel

Having a child born with a heart defect can really strike fear into parents, and create hundreds of questions about how your child can survive, and even thrive. Can they play like other kids? Run? Swim? Play sports? Julia Engel was that child, born with “ventricular septal defect” or VSD — more commonly known as a hole in her heart. A doctor told her in high school not to go out for the track team, but she has finished 3 Boston Marathons and enjoys bike riding too. Now she hosts a charity event, Bike LUCK that helps kids like her with heart defects, enjoy more active lives through Camp LUCK. Welcome to Charlotte Real Estate Talk Julia!
