2022 Chicago Congenital Heart Walk

Amazing Feats for Heartbeats

Amazing Feats and Heartbeats! was formed on behalf of our very own Heart Hero, Dylan! Our world was changed in August of 2020 when we discovered our son was born with a congenital heart defect that went undetected for over 9 years. On December 7, 2020, our prayers were answered and our fears were relieved as Dylan underwent a very successful heart surgery to repair his left coronary artery.  The Heart team at Lurie Children’s took excellent care of Dylan and ensured that dad and I were well informed every step of the way! It is important for us to raise awareness of CHD and to spread the word about listening to your children when they tell you something is wrong. This may save a child’s life, because it definitely changed ours. 

Please join our team and help raise awareness and funds for CHD. We would also love for you to walk with us in the upcoming Congenital Heart Walk!

Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to me. 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.

Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!

The Chicago Walk is June 11th. If you are interested in joining Dylan’s team, please let me know. Thank you for your support in advance!
