Fundraise

You Have the Power to Save the Day
for Congenital Heart Defects!

Help Us Raise Money for Congenital Heart Defects, the Most Common Birth Defect Worldwide.

Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) affect nearly 1 in 100 children and leads to a lifetime of medical visits, emotional challenges, financial burden for families. Heart Heroes and our partner CHD organizations are focused on helping families cope with these challenges, while also bringing forth awareness that will help generate funding for more research.

 

We need your help to make this happen.

 

How Do I Fundraise?

1. Sign-up to participate in your local Superhero Heart Run.  Find the next event in your area.   You can also sign up to be a Virtual Superhero at our “Virtually a Superhero” event (details coming soon!)

2. Log into your Classy.com account and click on “My Fundraisers”.  Select your team and edit, add a photo or brief blurb about why you’re “Saving the Day for CHD”, and you’re good to go!  Your donors will connect with you and your story, so let them know how their support will impact you.  You can thank donors and updates from your fundraising page, too!

3. Invite people to join your team, post updates, and start fundraising!  Ask friends and family to donate for CHD awareness.

4. Visit our Fundraising Toolkit page to find great online fundraising tools for your team or individual fundraising.
