Join us as we walk and raise funds for the 1 in 100 children and adults impacted by congenital heart disease (CHD) across the country.

The Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) is devoted to supporting the full lifespan of the millions of people impacted by CHD. We host walks in communities across the country to raise money for outreach, education, research and more.

Our events are for everyone born with a heart defect, their loved ones and the medical community that cares for them. We’re here to educate parents on the lifelong specialized care their child will need, to support young adults through the transition to adult CHD care, and to empower adults to take an active role in their cardiac care. In partnership with healthcare providers, ACHA is elevating access and quality of care through accreditation and unraveling the mysteries of living with CHD through research.

We are here for the person with a newly diagnosed heart defect, as well as the patient who’s seen it all, and everything in between. We hope you’ll join us in raising funds and awareness for the 1 in 100 children and adults living with CHD.

Important update regarding COVID-19 and Walk for 1 in 100

In accordance with the CDC's guidelines and in an effort to keep our community healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult, yet necessary decision to transition all of ACHA’s Walk for 1 in 100 events through October 31 to virtual events. During this time, ACHA will remain steadfast in delivering on our mission of providing timely, accurate information of importance to the CHD community, including COVID-19 pandemic updates. Click here to explore ACHA’s COVID-19 resources.

While we are disappointed we cannot meet this year in person, we’re looking forward to connecting with you virtually! You can still participate in your local ACHA Walk for 1 in 100 – check individual site pages to see the most up-to-date information. Don’t have a walk in your area? Visit our Your Way campaign and participate on your date, your town, any day of the year.
