Team WONDERHEART is Walking for Research!
It's that time of year again! Team WonderHeart is raising funds for critical 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. Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of birth-defect related mortality.
In 2019, my nephew, Milo, was born with a complex single-ventricle heart defect. Because of the advancement of research and treatment for congenital heart defects (CHDs), Milo received medical and surgical interventions immediately after birth. Without these, he would not have survived. Because there is no "cure" for a CHD, continued research and advancements will impact Milo's quality of life as he grows and develops, for the rest of his beautiful life. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors, like Milo, and Heart Angels, and personally meaningful to my family.
Please consider supporting our team WonderHeart and funding CHD research in the following ways:
- Join us on October 8, 2022 for the PORTLAND Congenital Heart Walk at the Oregon Zoo. A walk donation of just $12 a person gets you entrance into the zoo! Sign up to walk with Team WonderHeart here: here: https://give.childrensheartfoundation.org/site/TR/Events/HeartWalk?pg=team&fr_id=1246&team_id=2418
- Make a donation, NO MATTER THE SIZE, to the Children's Heart Foundation through my fundraising page. Click on "Donate Now."
We have hearts that hope and together we can make a life-saving difference.
Thanks in advance for your generous support!
I started fundraising with my own donation!
