Chicago Congenital Heart Walk

Hazel's Guardian Angels

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 in memory of our heart angel, Hazel Rose, who passed away due to respiratory failure from hypoplastic left hert syndrome at one month and 2 weeks old. We walk in support of her fight. We walk so people know her fight. Long live Hazel Rose, a life that never got to live.

Please support our team and join us for the Congenital Heart Walk!
