Join us for our 10th Annual Conquering CHD - Illinois Walk
Sunday, May 22th, 2022 - Rain or Shine
The Promenade Bolingbrook
Nearly 40,000 infants in the U.S. are born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) every year. CHD is the most common birth defect and the leading cause of infant death due to birth defects. Conquering CHD-Illinois is a non-profit with a mission to conquer CHD. We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, and partner organizations to improve quality and outcomes through CHD education, support, research, and awareness. We are unique in our approach – encompassing the lifespan, encouraging transparency, and meeting families where they are. Our volunteer team has supported local heart families in Illinois since 2011, through comfort care bags/kits, bereavement boxes, support meetings, family fun events, and so much more. Conquering CHD-IL is run 100% by volunteer leaders that are heart parents, patients, and family members.
