- The Congenital Heart Walk (CHW) is a joint national effort between the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) and The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) to support the millions of adults and children impacted by congenital heart disease (CHD), the #1 birth defect in the U.S. In 2016, more than 15,000 people will gather in nearly 30 cities across the United States, including Central Texas, to participate in a walk or 5K run with the goal of raising much-needed funds to benefit cutting-edge research, patient programs and advocacy initiatives. The Central Texas Congenital Heart Walk has a goal of raising $100,000 to fight CHD. There will be food, children’s activities, a photo booth and cosplay characters all free to participants. There is a recommendation of raising $125 per person.
