Team Izzy is once again raising critical funds for congenital heart defect research! Congenital heart defects are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes, including our sweet Izzy. Izzy has fought heart defects and heart failure for her entire life.
Team Izzy is a fixture of the Detroit Congenital Heart Walk, having been created in 2011 with the inaugural walk. Our captain and many members of Team Izzy devoted years to volunteering for the Children's Heart Foundation and spent hundreds of hours and raised tens of thousands of dollars on the Walk thanks in part to help from our community. We are hoping you will support us again and continue to fund much-needed research.
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 Team Izzy, join us for the Congenital Heart Walk, or both!
