2022 St. Louis Congenital Heart Walk

Braxtons Legacy

Our team is raising funds for congenital heart defect research - join us!

Why give? Congenital heart defects are the most common birth defect in the nation, impacting ONE in every 110 babies each year. The Children’s Heart Foundation exists to make sure these babies - and everyone impacted by CHDs - live long and healthy lives. Because of research, today there is greater hope for babies born with, and adults living with, congenital heart defects.



Raising funds for congenital heart defect (CHD) research is not only critically important to all babies born with, and children and adults living with CHDs, it is also personally meaningful to me.

Braxton Thomas Hood was born on August 28th 2020 with Tetralogy Of Fallot. After 4 long months and 8 days on Ecmo he won his battle with CHD and returned to his heavenly home. We walk for Braxton and all his fellow CHD angels and warriors today, tomorrow and in 50 years

CHD research is continuously evolving with the help of organizations such as The Children's Heart Foundation and donors like you. 

By donating to help me reach my fundraising goal, you’re helping to fund the most promising research into CHDs - America’s most common birth defect.

Together we can make changes! Thank you in advance for your support.


This is Braxton's Legacy. His way to continue to make a difference and "move mountains" for all his Trisomy and CHD siblings.
