The 2014 Northeast Indiana Heart Walk on Saturday, September 13th is our "mission in action."  The Heart Walk will be held at  the Ivy Tech North Campus - one block north of Stellhorn, off St. Joe Road.

Through the Heart Walk, we create opportunities for people to improve their health by walking and simultaneously raise funds to help fight heart disease and stroke.

  • Walkers can organize teams at the companies where they work or with family and friends. 
     
  • Walkers ask others to support their walk effort by sponsoring them with a donation to the American Heart Association. 
     
  • The Heart Walk is a wellness event that encourages healthy lifestyle choices.

Aiden in Fort WayneAiden was born with congenital heart defects and underwent a successful open heart surgery in 2004 to repair a large hole in his heart known as an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD).

He has another defect called a Cleft Mitral Valve with regurgitation. His conditions are closely monitored and controlled with daily medication.  As Aiden grows this condition could worsen resulting in another major surgery called a mitral valve repair or replacement.

Aiden is still an active young boy and is looking forward to sharing his story with walkers and making them more knowledgeable about congenital heart defects.
