The CHD Coalition of North Central PA

What We Do

The CHD Coalition is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that is devoted to improving the quality of life for children and adults who are affected by CHD. We lead fundraisers, connect with hospitals, spread the message of hope, and more.

Our Mission is to:
  • Unite and support the CHD community
  • Increase public awareness
  • Raise money for lifesaving medical research
CHD Awareness Walk

More than a fundraiser, this magnificent event allows families and friends to publicly rally in support of their special CHD Warrior. It honors the Angels who have lost their battle to congenital heart disease. It is a celebration with activities, food, and music to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience. Join us on this wonderful day to unite together and change the future of CHD.

Family events & support

We regularly host events to bring families together in a safe and fun way. From hospital recommendations to a shoulder to lean on, we offer invaluable support and resources for a chance to build lifelong friendships with others affected by CHD.

Hospital outreach

By working with local hospitals that have dedicated pediatric cardiology surgical programs, our goal is to bring hope to the CHD survivor and their family. To let them know that they are not alone, and that a community of Heart Families is ready to offer them support.

CHD research

Innovative research and emerging technologies can lead to the creation of new medical procedures, diagnoses, prevention methods, and treatments. Ultimately, CHD research saves lives—and we’re committed to helping further the field.
