The Children's Heart Foundation was founded in 1996 and is the country's leading organization solely dedicated to funding congenital heart defect (CHD) research. CHDs are America’s most common birth defect, affecting nearly 40,000 babies each year. Since the Children's Heart Foundation was founded, they have funded more than $11.1 million in life-saving, life-changing CHD research.


The Columbus Congenital Heart Walk series directly supports the mission of the Children’s Heart Foundation: to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CHDs. The 2019 Congenital Heart Walk series will raise critical research funds in 20 cities around the U.S., bringing together 15,000 walkers, hundreds of teams and thousands of donors in the fight against CHDs.
