2022 Tampa-St. Pete Congenital Heart Walk

inspired by isla

Our sweet Isla was born with a rare congenital heart defect that caused her to become our Heart Angel after just 8 hours and 42 minutes of life. She was diagnosed with TAPVR and was too small to qualify for any further life saving measures. We like to say she was "too small and too sweet for this big, scary world". 

This has truly opened our eyes to the number one birth defect in newborns - congenital heart defects (CHD). CHDs happen to 1 in 100 babies, and Isla's CHD happens to 1% of those babies. Our hopes are that our fundraising will contribute to getting closer these necessary advances in research.

Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to us. Together we can save more children.
