Join us as we walk for the more than 2.5 million people living with congenital heart disease (CHD) across the country. The ACHA Walk for 1 in 100 helps to raise awareness about CHD and the need for lifelong care, as well as raise funds to help the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) continue its efforts to provide education and research. Since 1998, 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 40+ ACHD programs across 25 states; and offers extensive educational tools, including defect-specific resources, weekly webinars, and a searchable clinic directory. In 2021, we will host walks in 11 communities 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.
