Last year, Allyson Catalano worked on a health access campaign inspired by her baby cousin who needed open-heart surgery for congenital defects. At the time, Allyson’s family was advocating to bring a Congenital Heart Walk to Boston in order to raise awareness of the issue, which they’ve now succeeded in doing. Allyson has taken on the role of a primary spokesperson for the local efforts. Below, learn more about the Congenital Heart Walk and discover how you can get involved to support a fellow student and her family:
Thank you for your interest in the Boston Metro Congenital Heart Walk which will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2013.This meaningful joint venture between the Adult Congenital Heart Association and The Children’s Heart Foundation is designed to bring together the congenital heart disease community like never before. We hope that you will consider forming a team and recruiting your friends, family members, and co-workers to become a part of our walk.
We look forward to working with you as we unite to fight congenital heart disease.
