Come walk with us!
Every year, we come together for American Heart Month to celebrate Walk with the Heart of a Child. A high-energy celebration including a walk, raffle and Kids Zone. Teams and supporters unite to walk for the 2 to 3 million heart heroes that are fighting the battle with congenital heart defects (CHD) and in remembrance of those who lost their fight.
Why We Walk
CHD is the #1 birth defect in the U.S. with nearly 40,000 or 1 in 100 babies born with a CHD each year. It is approximately 60 times more prevalent than childhood cancer and nearly twice as many children die each year from a CHD than all childhood cancers combined. Despite advances in medicine, 15% of children with CHD do not live past their 18th birthday.
Your support funds important programs designed to bring comfort and hope to the littlest of hearts. Whether it is helping a family with transportation to surgeries, sending a child to camp, providing a meal and holiday presents or funding critical research projects - our mission is focused on making a difference in the lives of our heart kids and their families.
