The Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance (CCHA) is thrilled to announce the Fearless Physical Activity event series that will be held across Ontario in 2017. Through funding from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, the CCHA has partnered with the CHEO Research Institute and recreational facilities in your local community to deliver Fearless Physical Activity events for children, teens, and adults living with congenital heart disease (CHD). The events will offer:

  • A variety of fun physical activity opportunities
  • Learning sessions to enable those living with CHD to adopt an active lifestyle without fear.
  • The opportunity to network with other CHD families
  • Discovery of community resources that will help you to lead an active lifestyle.
  • Learn more about the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance (CCHA).

Individual events are designed for children (5-12 years old), youth (13-18 years old) and adults.  Families of those living with CHD are invited to join their loved ones to participate in these fun events.  All activities are designed for all levels of ability and experience.  Please feel free to register for the event that best suits your family. 

Starting in the spring of 2017 Fearless Physical Activity events will be held in London, Ottawa, Thunder Bay or Sudbury and Toronto every season of the year! The three hour long, Fearless events will take place on the weekends, either on Saturday or Sunday at a local recreational facility.  Can’t make it out to a Fearless event, no problem. 'Fearless' information and resources needed to enable children, youth and adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) across Canada to lead active, healthy lifestyles without fear will be available via the CCHA web site after the completion of the 2017 Fearless events.

Fearless Physical Activity is the perfect opportunity to learn more about leading an active lifestyle with congenital heart disease and to try fun seasonal physical activity opportunities available in your community!
