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.
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page for the Congenital Heart Walk. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to us. As you know Stowe had open heart surgery to correct a life-threatening heart defect when she was just 13 days old.
Stowe's heart surgeon was able to conduct research thanks to funds raised by the Children's Heart Foundation. Funds raised on this page will directly support CHD research. Together we can make a life-saving difference!
We would appreciate your donations on Stowe's behalf and we also welcome you to join us on Sunday September 26th at the Bronx Zoo for our family's first heart walk!
Please support our team any way you can!
