From 2016 to 2018 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) across Ontario through funding from the Province of Ontario. 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.  We are now working on establishing this as a permanent program and expanding to other provinces.  These events offer opportunities to:

These events are a chance to learn and try our a variety of fun physical activities for people of all ages and abilities living with congenital heart disease (CHD) and their families, to encourage an active lifestyle with out fear.  These events include an educational session to talk about fears and learn tips and tools to overcome fear and barriers to physical activity.  Events are also an opportunity to connect and network with other CHD families and build a support system within your local 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!
