Thank you to all those who have all ready made a donation-Emilio Straubel.  We greatly appreciate your support.  This is a great cause and one that is so near and dear to our hearts.

We are walking to support the Children’s Heart Foundation, the goal of The Children’s Heart Foundation is to bring health, hope and happiness to children impacted by congenital heart defects, the number one birth defect in the United States. We accomplish this goal by funding the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects.

Most people are unaware that Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are the most common birth defect in America, affecting approximately one in one hundred, or 40,000 newborns each year. CHDs are responsible for one third of all birth defect-related deaths and sadly 20 percent of children who make it through birth will not survive past their first birthday.

Although a child is born every 15 minutes with a CHD, research continues to be grossly under-funded in America. Of every dollar the government spends on medical funding, only a fraction of a penny is directed toward congenital heart defect research.

As the country’s leading organization solely committed to CHD research funding, The Children’s Heart Foundation dedicates itself to bringing health, hope and happiness to children and families impacted by a CHD.

CHF has funded over $5.3 million of vital, life-saving CHD research since its inception.
Please consider joining our team. Just click the link above and donate and / OR sign up-it will be lots of fun!!  Every donation counts.

Many Thanks and Much Love,
Kristen, Lars, Kalvin and Finn
