Description

Join Project Bubaloo for our third annual Heart and Sole 5K Run/Walk benefiting Conquering CHD virtually on August 14-15, 2021. Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect in the United States and worldwide. 1 in 100 people are diagnosed with CHD and nearly 40,000 babies will be born with CHD in the U.S. this year. Estimates suggest there are more adults living with CHD than children, upwards of 1.5 million. Conquering CHD exists to conquer the most common birth defect. 

Registration Information:

  • Adult fee- $25
  • Kids (up to age 12) fee- $10

Participants that register by July 30 will be mailed an event t-shirt the week of the race. If you have questions about what a virtual race is, how to register, create a team, donate, etc., view our FAQ page.
