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

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 us. 

Our daughter Blair was born with multiple heart defects, which required surgery at just 6 days old. She had a second surgery at 5.5 months old and will require at least one more surgery next year. Despite living with multiple CHD’s, she is thriving and loving life! Blair enjoys gymnastics, swinging at the park, singing to her favorite songs, and spending time with her family. Currently there is no cure for her heart defects which is why this research is so important to us and critical to her life.

By donating to help us reach our fundraising goal, you’re helping to fund the most promising research into CHDs. 

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. 

Help us reach our fundraising goal by making a donation today. You can also become a member of our team and join us at the walk!

Thank you in advance for your support!
