Thank you for visiting our team page! Did you know every 15 minutes, a baby in this country is born with a congenital heart defect, making CHDs America's most common birth defect. Braxton was born prematurely with Tetralogy of Fallot and Trisomy 18. He broke his first rule the second he took his first breath. He spent the next 127 days fighting for his brave heart. Because of his genetic diagnosis and lack of research on the matter he was denied heart repair. They felt repairing his heart would not prolong his life due to the trisomy. The Congenital Heart Walk is dedicated to raising funds to support The Children's Heart Foundation's mission: to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CHDs by funding the most promising research. This research will help all future warriors and rule breakers by showing that heart repair is necessary in allowing these babies to grow and thrive and change the narrative.
Will you join us? By supporting our team or joining us in our walk, you're supporting research that will help save and improve the lives of babies born, and children and adults living, with CHDs. Thank you!
