2021 New York City Congenital Heart Walk


The Heart Beats

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.

This walk is very important to our family as we have our own heart warrior. He was born with tetralogy of fallot and had his first and hopefully last heart surgery on 4/8/2021. The advancements that have been made with research helped save our baby and make sure he has a long and happy life. Help make a difference in a heart warrior. This money is going to help fund research for more kids to come.

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!
