2019 Conquering CHD Walk in Ohio

Join the Pediatric Congenital Heart Association - Ohio and heart families from across the state and beyond to walk for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) on September 21, 2019. Our 2nd annual heart walk will take place at Mirror Lake in Eden Park, Cincinnati. The mile walk will honor those born with CHD, memorialize those lost to CHD, and uplift and encourage their families and medical staff who work to Conquer CHD every day. Registration is FREE

We have an amazing day planned with family friendly activities, games, food, and a visit from our Disney Princess friends. If you or a loved one has CHD, we encourage you to be part of this wonderful and supportive community. Even if you cannot join in the day of festivities, form a team in your heart hero's honor to spread CHD awareness and support local heart families. Every dollar and every social media share translates into CHD education, support, advocacy, and research. 

All proceeds go to PCHA-OH to continue its mission to "Conquer Congenital Heart Disease" by providing hospital care kits, dinners, holiday parties, and peer support to families at Cincinnati Children's and Nationwide Children's Hospitals. As of this year, PCHA-OH is now offering medical research grants to local doctors and researchers doing promising work to improve the quality of life and outcomes for those living with CHD. Together, we are Conquering CHD!

Story

WHO WE ARE?

The Pediatric Congenital Heart Association - Ohio is a state chapter of the national PCHA organization whose mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.” We accomplish this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, & partner organizations to improve quality in care and health outcomes through CHD education, support, research, and awareness. Our partnerships with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital allow us to deliver care kits, dinners, and peer support to families of children undergoing critical medical procedures and long hospital stays. Each of our volunteers have experienced a CHD journey and understand its hardships. We aim to improve the lives of those living with CHD wherever they are on their journey.

WHY WE WALK?

Each year, 1 in 100 babies are born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). CHD is the life-long consequence of a heart defect, or a structural abnormality of the heart present at birth. It is the most common birth defect. In 2019, in the U.S. alone, 40,000 babies will be born with CHD. Of those, 25% will undergo life-saving open heart surgery or other interventions to survive. While there is much hope, and survival rates have climbed in the last 20 years, there is no cure. CHD requires a lifetime of specialized care. There is much we do not understand about CHD, what causes it, and how to prevent it. The Conquering CHD Walk will help raise much needed funds and awareness.
