Mission Statement

The mission of the Adult Congenital Heart Association is to improve and extend the lives of the millions born with heart defects through education, advocacy and research.

Description

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

Our events are for everyone born with a heart defect, their loved ones and the medical community that cares for them. We’re here to educate parents on the lifelong specialized care their child will need, to support young adults through the transition to adult CHD care, and to empower adults to take an active role in their cardiac care. In partnership with healthcare providers, ACHA is elevating access and quality of care through accreditation and unraveling the mysteries of living with CHD through research.

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. We hope you’ll join us in raising funds and awareness for the 1 in 100 children and adults living with CHD.
