2021 Portland Congenital Heart Walk

Team Payce

Payce was born 4 years ago with a congenital heart defect requiring open heart surgery at 5 months of age. This little heart warrior is small but mighty and has shown resilience throughout her life. Her heart is so big and beautiful. Her family is thankful for the continued CHD research to help these little ones persevere and become our future. We walk with and for the Heart Warriors and Angels. 


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!
