Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance

Fearless Physical Activity

You are here


The Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance (CCHA) partnered with CHEO's HALO Research Institute, and recreational facilities in your local community to deliver Fearless Physical Activity events for children, teens, and adults living with congenital heart disease (CHD) held across Ontario in 2017. These events will offer opportunities to:

Each season, Fearless Physical Activity events were held in London, Ottawa, Thunder Bay or Sudbury and Toronto for all ages and all levels of ability and experience! These events were very successful in creating new connections amongst families living with congenital heart defects, as well as new partnerships with local recreational facilities.  These new connections will help to continue to strengthen the support of the CCHA community. 

Interested in Fearless Physical Activity?

Many different activities, including a variety of sports, games, crafts and team building tasks were introduced over the course of the project.  As we aim to ensure that recreational facilities and families can continue to host Fearless events in the future, we have provided some of the resources throughout the year for you to try at home! A more in-depth guide to hosting a Fearless event will be available soon!

Check out how congenital heart disease stacks up against better recognized diseases in Canada! So many affected and so little awareness and funding! Get involved with CCHA, donate, and spread the word about the growing population of of "survivors" so that we can get the care and support we need to live long, healthy lives!
