Join us as we walk for the more than 2.5 million people living with congenital heart disease (CHD) across the country.

Since 1998, the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) has been empowering and advocating for the 1 in 100 children and adults impacted by CHD. We are thrilled to celebrate our 25th anniversary milestone this year with our ACHA family and the greater CHD community.

We are proud of the relationships we have built with ACHD medical providers and programs through the years, and to have been an integral part of increasing access to quality care for patients through our comprehensive ACHD Clinic Directory, introducing ACHA ACHD Accreditation, advocacy efforts and extensive educational, defect-specific resources on www.achaheart.org, averaging nearly half a million website pageviews a year.

In 2024, we will host walks across the country to raise money for continued research, education and outreach for the CHD community. Our mission is to empower the CHD community by advancing access to resources and specialized care that improve patient-centered outcomes—and every day our supporters help us to do so!

We hope you will help us further our impact by supporting your local ACHA Walk for 1 in 100.
