Join CCF and families across the country as we host Bake for a Cure bake sales to increase awareness of cardiomyopathy and raise funds for research.

Celebrate National Heart Month by
Joining CCF's 50-State Awareness Challenge

This National Heart Month, you can help raise awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy, a chronic and potentially life-threatening heart disease. Join in the activities taking place across the U.S. and make sure your state is represented in CCF's 50-State Awareness Challenge.

During the month of February, earn a heart for your state for every awareness activity that you initiate or participate in that is focused on pediatric cardiomyopathy. Share facts on social media, host a Bake for a Cure sale or Facebook fundraiser, speak to local community groups, or organize a school presentation. There are so many activities to engage in!

Together, we can unite hearts across America and bring much needed attention to pediatric cardiomyopathy.
