This year marks Team CCHA's 8th year participating in the Walk of Life!  Our goal is to raise over $20,000 to support education and awareness programs, camp programs, advance research, and increase the profile of congenital heart disease across Canada. Note: You must be a member of "Team CCHA" in order for the money you raise to go towards the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance.  Team CCHA is the only charity team supporting both children and adults with congenital heart defects and their families across Canada.

Funds raised by Team CCHA are split with 66% of the funds raised going to CCHA (the other 33% goes to the Cardiac Foundation of Canada; a charitable organization dedicated to supporting cardiac rehabilitation and the advocacy of prevention and education across Canada. Many of our members with congenital heart defects take advantage of the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada's cardiac rehabilitation programs to help them exercise safely under supervision, and before and after surgery).

Can't make it out the day of the event, you can still help by donating and asking your friends and family to donate as well.  Please visit our team page by clicking Team CCHA and select 'General Team Donation'.
