Craig Ranch Regional Park to Host Annual Walk to Benefit Heart Kids in Southern Nevada on April 23
Children’s Heart Foundation continues to make big moves for the 19th Annual Walk with the Heart of a Child. The annual family walk turns 19 with its second year as an outdoor event at Craig Ranch Regional Park, giving walkers a vast space to lace up their sneakers and step out to support the one in 100 (or 40,000) children in the United States who are born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) each year. These 40,000 annual cases make congenital heart defects the leading cause of illness and death in the first year of life.

Founded in 2001, the Children’s Heart Foundation is committed to making a difference in the lives of children with heart conditions through empowering families through emotional, educational and financial support leading to a higher quality of life. Children’s Heart Foundation has four main goals: to lend support to families as they deal with the emotional and financial toll exacted by a child’s heart condition, to provide a medically-supervised camp experience for children with heart conditions, to educate healthcare professionals and the general public on pediatric cardiology issues; and to support research in the area of pediatric cardiology.
