Long Island Congenital Heart Walk

Caleb's Crusaders

Caleb was born on 7/21/14 with complex congenital heart disease.  He has Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome, Tricuspid Stenosis, Transposed Great Arteries, ASD, VSD, and a small aorta.  Caleb has had 3 open heart surgeries @ 2 days old, 6 months old, and 22 months old.  Although Caleb's heart will never be "ok" or "normal", he is living his best life!  Caleb is a Godzilla and dinosaur-loving, Star Wars fan who enjoys swimming, playing with his little brother, and TOYS! 

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.
