Join Denver Walk for 1 in 100’s Planning Committee, Walkers, sponsors, and staff to gather together and celebrate the work that we all put into this year’s Walk for 1 in 100. A little snow and cold can’t keep us down for long! 

  • Walkers who earned t-shirts, travel mugs, windbreakers, and other incentive prizes for fundraising can pick them up at this event or incentives will be shipped to you following the event.
  • ACHA will provide appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks.  If attendees choose to purchase alcoholic drinks or entrees, they will be responsible for those purchases.  The location has both video games and tv’s to keep up on the day’s sports.

If you’re interested in learning more about staying insured throughout your life as a person with CHD, check out our CHD Conversation about health insurance options earlier that day nearby.

 

Important information regarding the 2019 Denver Walk for 1 in 100:

After carefully monitoring the weather throughout the week we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2019 Denver Walk for 1 in 100event scheduled for this Sunday.  With the latest forecast showing snow and extreme cold likely, and City Park Pavilion not permitting heaters to be brought in due to the historic nature of the venue, we felt this decision was necessary to ensure the safety and comfort of our participants and volunteers.  We are so thankful for all of the hard work put in by our local committee of volunteers, our sponsors and walkers and hope to plan a separate event in the coming weeks to celebrate soon! 

If you have donations you were planning to turn in on walk day – please complete this form and mail the donations to our National Office (280 N Providence Rd, Suite 6, Media, PA 19063). In addition, our website will remain open for any online donations.   Individuals who have raised $100 or more will be able to pick up their T-shirts and any other prizes for which they quailfied for at the soon-to-be scheduled appreciation event. 

We hope you understand why we had to make this difficult decision.  Thank you for your continued and generous support of the Walk for 1 in 100, and please be sure to keep an eye out for more information to come out soon regarding the new event to celebrate your efforts.

 

Will you join us?

Join us as we walk for the 1 in 100 children and adults impacted by congenital heart disease (CHD) across the country. The Adult Congenital Heart Association is devoted to supporting the full lifespan of the millions of people impacted by CHD. In 2019, we will host walks in 14 communities to raise money for outreach, education, research and more. 

Our events were created to empower all of those who were born with a heart defect, their loved ones and the medical community that cares for them. 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 son or daughter will need, and to support young adults through the transition to adult CHD care. We are here for the person with a newly diagnosed heart defect, as well as the patient who’s seen it all, and everything in between.
