How Can You Help?

Fundraising Ideas

Heart Heroes relies on donations and fundraising activities so we can provide Heart Hero Capes to children with CHD.  Check out our Fundraising Ideas for ways you can help support Heart Heroes! 

Educational Resources

Heart Heroes’ mission is to provide families of CHD children with support and comfort.  One way to do this is providing educational resources to learn about CHD, medical advancements as well as places to go for help.  Visit our Resources page

Support Events

Locally, we strive to provide family support events for CHD families.  There is no better way to know that you’re not alone in this journey than to connect with other families going through the same thing.  Join us for an Event soon!

Donate to Heart Heroes

When you donate to Heart Heroes, you help us give back to families who are affected by CHD.  If it’s through a monetary donation or by directly donating to provide a cape for a CHD child, your donation goes directly toward our Heart Heroes.  Donate today!
