Conquering CHD- Kentucky Virtual Walk

Conquering CHD - Kentucky Virtual  Walk!  With continued concerns over the spread of COVID-19 we have made the decision to do a virtual walk event this year as our first walk.  This decision was not made lightly, but the safety of our heart warriors and walkers is most important.  
Conquering CHD - Kentucky' mission is to Conquer Congenital Heart Disease. We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, and partner organizations to improve quality and outcomes through CHD education, support, research, and awareness. Our volunteer team has supported local heart families in Kentucky since 2017, through comfort care bags/kits, bereavement boxes, support meetings, family fun events, and so much more.  Conquering CHD-KY is run 100% by volunteer leaders that are heart parents, patients, and family members.
