Welcome to the Children’s Heart Program (CHP) Running Team. Registration is now closed for our team in the Baltimore Running Festival, and we hope you can support our cause with a donation. You can find and donate through a teammate’s page or just make a general donation.

The running team's mission is to help CHP families meet the extraordinary demands of caring for a child with heart disease. Our funds specifically support activities that help families meet these needs, such as family support groups and renovated spaces for families in the intensive care units.

This year, we pledge our fundraising to the amazing pediatric rehab team that serves the Children's Heart Program. These incredible therapists help families use the ordinary, loving tasks of parenting to improve their children's nutrition and mobility after surgery, which we know are crucial components to recovery.

What could be better motivation to donate or run than to help a baby heal by learning to feed or taking first steps?

Meet two of our heart patients: Hudson and Tessa (below).
