These little fighters face Heart Stopping Challenges

During surgery a child’s chest cavity can be filled with an icy slush to slow the heart’s need for oxygen, which can help give the surgeon a longer window of operating time.  With heart surgeries being performed on tiny hearts every single day, anything that can help these fighters get through their massive challenges is vital. 

The Heart Stopper Challenge celebrates these brave children, and aims to spread awareness and provide lifelong support for those who battle congenital heart defects.

Heart Stopper Challenge funds raised will be used to support heart children and their families in local communities across the country.

The Heart Stopper Challenge is free to enter and requires no athletic prowess - just brave and passionate people who are willing to have a little heart for these small fighters!
