A Walk for Awareness, A Walk for a Cure

Join Team CCF for our second annual Walk For A Cure during Children’s Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month. The September event unites families across the country to raise awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy, a chronic heart disease and the number one cause for heart transplants and sudden cardiac arrest in children under 18.

It takes a team to defeat cardiomyopathy, and we need you on our team! You can join Team CCF by registering to walk with us in New Jersey or organizing a walk in your hometown. Together, we can advance research and improve care and support for more children with cardiomyopathy and their families.

If you are unable to organize a walk team but still want to support CCF, you can make a general donation or donate toward a team or individual’s walk goals. To make a donation, click here.

New Jersey Event

Come walk with us and connect with families affected by cardiomyopathy and the people who care about our cause. The family event is sure to be memorable with an inspirational send-off and a festive finish line celebration with music, kid activities and food. Last year more than 110 CCF families and friends from the tri-state area walked in honor of children affected by cardiomyopathy. Download event poster.
