Charlotte Congenital Heart Walk

Rally for Callie

Our team is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects in memory of our daughter Callie!

After a completely normal pregnancy, our daughter Callie was born with a rare heart defect in which there was a gap in her coronary artery preventing blood from flowing adequately to her vital organs.  After many tests, ultrasounds, and blood draws, our daughter passed away in our arms when she was 2 days and 6 hours old.  This is something that has changed our lives forever.

I am a firm believer that someday, with advances in research, early detection of a heart defect such as Callie's could lead to a different outcome which is why this organization means so much to our family.  WHAT IF.....Callie's heart defect had been detected half way through the pregnancy.  WHAT IF.....we would have known and would have had a team of dedicated professionals by our side already creating a plan for when Callie arrived.  WHAT IF.....the money we raise from this walk funds research that could leave to that detection.

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!
