Why We Ride

Every Heart Has a Story

When parents hear their unborn child’s heartbeat for the first time, it’s magical.

But what if that tiny heart doesn’t sound right? That’s the reality for many parents. One of every 120 children is born with congenital heart disease. Others are diagnosed with a heart condition during childhood, and some acquire heart disease as they grow. All told, there are millions of children living with some type of pediatric heart disease.

All of the funds raised through Philly Spin-In support For Tomorrow’s Breakthroughs: The Campaign for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. With your help, we can transform the patient-family experience, forge new discoveries in cardiac care, bolster training programs, advocate for children in underserved communities, and quickly respond to new opportunities that may – one day – cure all children with pediatric heart disease.

The Impact of Your Gift

People may not realize just how important their donation is and just how significant that is for us.
Stephanie Fuller, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon

Thanks to the enormous advances made at CHOP’s Cardiac Center, children are not only surviving these potentially deadly conditions — they are thriving.

Our experienced cardiac team has revolutionized the way children with heart conditions are cared for, diagnosing and — in some cases — even treating children before birth, and actively following them well into adulthood.

Helping these doctors pave the way for more kids and more families — there could be nothing more important in my opinion.
