The tragedy of what happened to Walt Harris and his family, after his step daughter, Aniah Blanchard, was murdered still haunts a lot of people to this day. They have decided to start a foundation, with the intent of helping others in similar situations. It was late 2019, when Harris began asking for help to find his step daughter, who had gone missing. Everyone from the UFC, to local government, and more were trying to help in the search. Unfortunately, tragedy would strike as it was discovered that she had been kidnapped and murdered. It was a heartbreaking story that left everyone involved scarred for life and saddened for Walt and his family.

However they decided that they would try to give back, by starting the "Aniah's Heart Foundation." As Walt explained when speaking to UFC.com, he and his wife began this foundation with the intent to help others who are dealing with missing loved ones. They aim to give some sort of direction and help in ways that they wish they had when they were going through the same thing. \u201cIn the midst of all the turmoil we were going through, we didn\u2019t know where to turn during those first hours of abduction, which are the most critical,\u201d remarked Walt Harris. \u201cAn important aspect of our foundation is to help guide families and loved ones during those times, as everything is a whirlwind and it\u2019s very traumatizing. From our personal experience, we might be able to comfort families and help point them in the right direction.\u201d The foundation has safety classes over Zoom and Facebook, and gives safety care packages to groups on a monthly basis. They will also be assisting in funding search efforts for missing persons, which are oftentimes quite expensive. \u201cWhen a family member has a missing loved one, you really don\u2019t know what you need to do. The contributions we receive for Aniah\u2019s Heart will go towards lodging, food, travel and other costs you just wouldn\u2019t think about. We needed clothes on the fly, food and a place to stay when everything first happened,\u201d said Walt. \u201cIt becomes very, very expensive very quickly, and we realized how much goes into everything in real time. In those moments, parents aren\u2019t even thinking of anything related to those things. You don\u2019t think about renting a helicopter that costs $10,000 to search the areas from the air, you are just doing anything you can to try and find your child. We want to ease that stress as families are going through and those issues in the middle of that horrible process. We just want to be a buffer and blessing in that situation.\u201d View this post on Instagram A post shared by Walt Harris (@thebigticket205) This is an unbelievable effort from Walt Harris and his wife. They say they are guided by Aniah's kindness, and they feel like this is the right thing to do in order to honor the memory of their kindhearted daughter.
