One in every 125 children born in the United States has a Congenital Heart Defect.

The Lea Family and The Grace Alice Campbell Foundation are committed to raising money to help children with congenital heart defects.

Heart defects are the number one cause of death from birth defects; more than twice as many children die from them in their first years of life than from all types of childhood cancers combined.

We are raising awareness by hosting a variety of education programs:

  • Sponsoring AED and CPR training for local coaches
  • Starting a coloring contest at a local elementary school
  • Coordinating activities in support of National Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week (Feb 7-14). 

We are committed to raising money to help children with congenital heart defects.

In the past three years, the Hearts at Play "Family Fun Night" event, as well as other fundraising efforts, have raised nearly $70,000. Every cent of which has been donated to programs dedicated to helping children with congenital heart defects.

Our Fundraising Events Include:

We have donated:

  • $50,000 to Children’s Hospital Boston and have established the Colin Samuel Brown Memorial Fund for pediatric cardiac research
  • Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) to local youth athletic teams
  • Medical supplies, including pulse oximeters and AED pads, to local elementary schools

We are committed to … supporting other families and friends affected by congenital heart defects.

While dealing with our own children’s congenital heart defects, we have been fortunate enough to meet and provide support for dozens of other families dealing with the same issues.

We have provided support for families affected by heart defects by:

  • Providing financial assistance
  • Sharing information, resources and support
