The ROCK THE BEAT 5K/Kid’s Fun Run is a community event to raise awareness of the most common birth defect in the U.S. and to benefit the families affected by congenital heart defects (CHDs) in Coastal Virginia and its surrounding areas. One in every 110 babies arediagnosed with a congenital heart defect (CHD)—that’s 40,000 each year! Today, there are 2-4 million Americans living with CHD.
Mended Little Hearts of Coastal Virginia is a chapter of the national non-profit program that empowers families affected by CHD through peer-to-peer support, education, awareness, hospital programs, advocacy and connecting families with needed resources to improve quality of life in our community. Mended Little Hearts inspires hope in families of children born with congenital heart defects and lets them know they are not alone.
