The primary fundraising goal of the CHD Walk for Hope is to advance CHD-specific research. Progressive research and emerging medical technologies offer an enormous impact on the survival and long-term care of individuals affected by congenital heart defects. Due to the huge success of our annual walk over the past 10+ years, more than $1 Million has been granted to the leading research hospitals throughout the United States.

On Sunday, October 2, 2022, the CHD Coalition held its CHD Walk for Hope at the beautiful and spacious Overpeck County Park in Leonia, NJ. 73 teams spanning a total of 811 participants rallied to celebrate their CHD Warrior or Angel. It was a truly inspiring day that emphasized to all the families that you are not alone on your journey with congenital heart defects.

We are extremely proud to report that over 100% of the profits have been given directly to research. No other CHD organization, big or small, can make the same claim. This gives you the reassurance that your donation has a real impact to the cause. More information on our research grants can be accessed here:
