Volunteer at the Cleveland Congenital Heart Walk

The Cleveland Congenital Heart Walk, sponsored by the Childrens’ Heart Foundation, is a fun, free, family-friendly yearly event where we raise awareness and funding for Crucial Research to end Congenital Heart Defects, which affect 1 out of every 110 babies born in the United States that can end in infant or child mortality. The Congenital Heart Walk relies on the invaluable help of many Volunteers for this event.

With your generous help as a Volunteer, we raise money for Congenital Heart Defect Research, help our Heart Warriors, Heart Angel Families, and all of our other supporters, connect with our mission at these events.

We have engaging and important roles for our needed VOLUNTEERS for this important event. We seek to build large, diverse communities to help us grow! We’d love your help, and you can contribute to our mission in the role as a volunteer that best fits you!
