Thank you for visiting the fundraising page of Matthew's Crew! Over the past two years, Matthew’s Crew has raised over $35,000 and this year we hope to top $20,000 again. This cause is enormously near and dear to our hearts since our youngest son Matthew was born with a serious heart defect in September of 2015. Since then, our family has become largely involved in the CHD Coalition, whose goal is to improve the quality of life, fund medical research, and unite and create a community for families where Congenital Heart Defects have impacted their lives.
We will be walking with the Congenital Heart Defect Coalition on Sunday, September 30th. Their mission is to support families impacted by a congenital heart defect. The annual CHD awareness walk brings families together to celebrate and honor our heart warriors. We would love for you to walk with us this year. If you are unable to join us, please consider donating to this important cause. No donation is too small! Congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defect worldwide and is the leading cause of all infant deaths in the United States. Nearly 1 in 100 babies are born with a CHD. Research is greatly underfunded but with your help we can bring much needed awareness and fund groundbreaking research to help improve and extend the lives of those born with a Congenital Heart Defect.
We thank you for joining us. We take comfort in the strength that you give us through your support.
