2021 Washington DC Congenital Heart Walk

Full of Hope

Our team is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects! Congenital heart defects are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes. Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of birth-defect related mortality. 

Funded research is making a very big difference in the lives of CHD patients, helping to reduce incidences and increase survival, longevity and quality of life. Research has made a very big impact, and with survival and longevity increasing, even more research is needed to help address lifelong challenges that CHD patients will face. Every dollar in support of The Children’s Heart Foundation helps to further their mission: to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects.

We walk for our son Asher, who has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. We walk for all of Asher's CHD buddies. We walk for the heart angels. We walk for the nurses, doctors, surgeons, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, physical therapists, ECHO technicians and all the other specialists that help our son fight. We walk for the families that came before us and for the families who are just joining the fight. We are team full of hope.

Please support our team, join us for the Congenital Heart Walk, or both!
