Over 200 people enjoyed being outside Sunday, showing their support for Max Johnson, a two-year-old from the city who received a heart transplant one week ago.
Johnson was born with congenital heart defects.
Sunday, children of many ages and their parents made their way out to Nick's Nest and Bumblebee's for a fundraising event called "High Fives for Mighty Max".
It has only been a week since the transplant, but Max's dad says his son is doing well.
"Every time the monitors go off, we get nervous," said Matt Johnson. "Every time they come for rounds, we get nervous. Every time his heart rate or blood pressure goes a little high, we get nervous. Right now we're pretty nervous about everything. The doctors say medically he's doing great. There's a chance he could be released in the next five days."
At Sunday's event, kids got to put their hand-prints on a poster that will be on display next week during a huge golf tournament fundraiser in Max's honor.
