2014 Congenital Heart Walk of Greater Cincinnati

10:00 am

On Saturday, October 11, 2014, The Children’s Heart Foundation and Adult Congenital Heart Foundation (ACHA) will sponsor the 5th annual Congenital Heart Walk at Eden Park in Cincinnati, OH. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the walk begins at 10:00 a.m.

CHD is the #1 birth defect in the world, impacting millions of families each year. This family-friendly 1 mile walk and rally raises funds which will be split between The Children’s Heart Foundation and ACHA. Congenital Heart Walk supporters can sign up ahead of time to walk individually or in teams by registering at www.congenitalheartwalk.org or by calling (215) 856-4373.

This event is also sponsored by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Heart Institute, Mended Little Hearts, and Bodyworks of Cincinnati.

Approximately 40,000 babies are born with a congenital heart defect every year in the United States alone. These conditions often result in multiple surgical procedures, life-long disabilities, and all too often, death.

Leslie Sams, co-chair for the Greater Cincinnati Congenital Heart Walk, is also the mother of a child with CHD. “It’s terrifying having a child with a congenital heart defect, and while we’re eternally grateful to the doctors, the scary part is that you don’t know exactly what the future holds,” she says. “The research is still relatively new, so it’s kind of like waiting around for the research to catch up with where we’re at.”

While research into CHD has come a long way in the past few decades, there is still much ground to cover for both children and adults with CHD. “It used to be that people with CHD didn’t become adults,” Sams says. “Now the goal is not only to let them live to adulthood, but also to help them thrive and have quality of life.”
