Will you join us?
Join us as we walk for the more than 2.5 million people living with congenital heart disease (CHD) across the country. Since 1998, the Adult Congenital Heart Association (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.
We hope you will join us and help us further our impact by supporting ACHA’s Walk for 1 in 100.
Time: Virtual Opening Ceremonies at 9 a.m.
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff, ACHA has made the decision to make the 2021 New York City Walk for 1 in 100 a virtual event. While we are disappointed not to gather together in-person for this event, we are still going to create an exciting virtual space that will allow us to come together as a community on walk day.
Here’s what to expect on the virtual event day:
• 9 AM EDT: Opening Ceremony
• 9:30 AM EDT: WALK in your local neighborhood!
• 10:15 AM EDT: Virtual SOCIAL HOUR
We encourage you and your team to make signs, wear team shirts and bring noisemakers! Event t-shirts and incentive prizes will be mailed to your home. How we celebrate may look different this year but WHY we celebrate remains the same: to empower and support the CHD community!
