Whether you are running your first marathon, walking in your local park, or organizing a community bike tour, you can turn your favorite pastime into a fundraising opportunity. We are calling on all runners, walkers, swimmers, and bikers to join Team CCF and help us continue funding promising research, educating others on the disease, and providing support to affected children and their families.
To get on Team CCF, you can register your activity with us. The CCF event team will connect you to the right resources and help you set up a personalized team page to make it easier to collect pledges for your athletic event.
San Antonio 5K Marathon
Wearing her CCF t-shirt Kavitha Baratakke ran in honor of her daughter, Sharanya, who was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy a day before her first birthday. With 100 percent humidity and temperatures well into the 80s, Kavitha finished the San Antonio 5K marathon with an impressive time of 2:07:33. With the support of friends and family, she raised more than $2,400 for CCF.

Chad Joseph was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in 1999, and four years later had a defibrillator and pacemaker implanted. Under his physicians' guidance, Chad trained for months to prepare for the Men’s Health New York’s Urbanathlon, a challenging 10-mile, 19 obstacle course. Chad set up a crowdrise page to share his story and raised more than $6,000 for CCF.
