Long Island Congenital Heart Walk

Warrior Princess Madeline

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.

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


'Madeline's journey started before she was born. Congenital Heart defects have come such a long way over the years. Raising funds for research is critical for our children . Madeline has undergone 3 open heart surgeries , 2 cardiac catheterization. This is her heart surgical history, but due to low oxygen levels during my pregnancy with her and up until her 3rd open heart surgery her low oxygen caused other complications with development.

On May 3, Madeline's "10th" birthday is the same day as this years Congenital Heart Walk! Help us continue to raise money for research, the research that has saved so many blue babies, but still has so much more to go. The number of adults with congenital heart defects is raising and it is amazing!!!

We need your help, we need support. Congenital heart defects have come so far but need still need more. <3'
