Heart Warrior Walk

Tragically, some heart families have faced the heart-breaking death of their child and it is important to us that bereaved heart families know we are here at every stage of their journey with CHD.

On World Heart Day, Sunday 29th September 2019, we held our first CHT Heart Warrior Walk in honour of heart warriors that have passed away.

The day started off with families making a unique kite dedicated to their heart warrior – we were very impressed with the creative designs! Once everyone had finished the kites we headed off, kites in hand, for a short, flat stroll around Antrim Castle Gardens and even managed to dodge most of the rain!!

After the walk, families were treated to a warm cuppa and lots of sweet treats before the kids were entertained with some balloon modelling and a magic show, giving parents the opportunity to get to know each other.

Overall, It was lovely way to catch up with so many heart families and honour their courageous heart warriors on World Heart Day. We look forward to meeting up again next year.
