Why Donate?

Every 15 minutes a baby is born with a heart defect.  Every 15 minutes, a new challenge is thrust upon a family. There is no cure. If a baby is lucky enough to survive, they are faced with the life long consequences of congenital heart disease.

During one of those 15 minutes, our world was forever changed by congenital heart defects with the birth of our youngest son.

I am walking to help Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.  I want to ensure that all children, especially my son, not only survive, but thrive to live a long, productive life with congenital heart disease.

I am also walking to support the Conquering CHD.  In just one short year, it has demonstrated a profound impact uniting both the medical and the patient communities to join in the fight to Conquer CHD.

Conquering CHD’s mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.”  It is founded on the key purpose to be the resounding voice of the pediatric patient population through collaboration in education, research and advocacy.  CCHD works to reduce the impact of congenital heart disease while striving to realize a world free from it.

Large or small, any donation will benefit children and adults with heart defects.
