My name is Samantha and I am the events coordinator for the Adult Congenital Heart Association. I never had a personal connection to congenital heart disease until I was hired last year. Since then I have been all around the country planning events to fundraise for congenital heart disease and meeting so many people in this community. People that were just my co-workers/volunteers have become my close friends, and that’s why I am walking for 1 in 100.
Although I am the coordinator for 7 events, Boston has a special place in my heart because I grew up in Dorchester, Massachusetts! Last year our Boston walk was historic, and I am confident that this year will be too.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated. I’ve seen first hand the impact ACHA has on the CHD community. It changes, improves and empowers them to share their story and know that they are not alone. Thank you!
