WHO WE ARE

Conquering CHD-Ohio is a statewide non-profit organization and a program of Conquering CHD, a national organization that exists to Conquer the most common birth defect, Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers and partner organizations through CHD education, support, research and awareness.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) is a structural deformity present at birth.

Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) refers to the lifelong impact of being born with anomalies of the heart, whether structural or electrical.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

WHY WE WALK & RUN

Each year, nearly 40,000 infants are born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) in the United States. CHD is the most common birth defect and the leading cause of birth defect-associated infant illness and death. (CDC, 2020)

We walk and run to honor and celebrate every individual and family member impacted by CHD.

Proceeds from this year's event will be used to advance our mission by providing necessary funds to continue distributing Conquering CHD hospital and prenatal kits, funding of college scholarships for CHD and transplant survivors pursuing higher education in and around Ohio, and medical and research grants to help improve the lives of those living with CHD as well as numerous activities, events and educational programs Conquering CHD-Ohio hosts and supports yearly.
