______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

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 & prenatal kits, funding of college scholarships for CHD and transplant survivors pursuing higher education in and around Ohio, and medical research grants to help improve the lives of those living with CHD, as well as the numerous activities, events and educational programs Conquering CHD-Ohio hosts and supports yearly.

After the event, we hope guests leave feeling uplifted, supported, and more informed about the nation's #1 birth defect!

5K Race Route-Wabash Cannonball Trail

This is an out and back paved route starting at Fallen Timbers Mall following the Wabash Cannonball Trail. The course is a mix of shady & direct sun. There will be one water/trash station at the halfway point. Bananas, granola bars & water will be provided at the finish line. Please bring additional hydration/nutrition, if necessary or desired. 

1 Mile Walk Route- Fallen Timbers Monument Trail

This is a 1-Mile paved route that journeys through the Metropolitan Park to the Fallen Timbers State Memorial Monument and back. **Walkers will begin at the Crosswalk and are asked to respect ongoing traffic and walk in accordance with the traffic signal at this intersection** This will help prevent blocked mall traffic while maintaining distance between walking groups.* 

This route is a mix of shade and direct sun. Please dress accordingly. There will be a cooler with ice water available at the turnaround loop as well as a few public benches. Dogs and strollers welcome. 

Kids Fun Run

This will be a short down and back run (or more technically a "sprint!") starting and finishing at the Dave's Running inflatable. Nothing competitive, just a fun way to involve and cheer on our children while promoting heart-healthy activities!
