About the Virginia Chapter

The Children’s Heart Foundation Virginia Chapter was founded to support the mission of The Children’s Heart Foundation, funding the most promising CHD research.  We are a group of volunteers dedicated to raising awareness and money for CHD research. Our board is comprised of heart moms, a pediatric heart surgeon and caring individuals who have embraced this cause as their own.
