WHY WE WALK

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. ACHA funds ACHD-specific research grants and is a leading organization in advocating for research at the federal level; has accredited 46 ACHD programs across 27 states; and offers extensive educational tools, including defect-specific resources, weekly webinars, and a searchable clinic directory.

In 2022, we will host walks across the country to raise money for continued research, education, and outreach for the CHD community. We’re here to empower adults to take an active role in their cardiac care, to educate parents on the lifelong specialized care their young child will need in the future, and to support young adults through the transition to adult CHD care.

We hope you will join us and help us further our impact by supporting ACHA’s Walk for 1 in 100.
