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!
