About WHM: Energetic, social, happy, coy, cuddly – all these describe our precious Maggie. She was always on the go with a need to be in the middle of every gathering. Her smile lit up the room and her little head tilt melted the hearts of anyone around her. Maggie passed away in July 2008 due to complications during a procedure to correct a congenital heart defect. She blessed us with the most amazing 14 months of life, and instilled in us a passion to help other families with whom we share a common bond. We determined that we could keep the wonderful memories we have of Maggie alive while also giving back to the organization which helped us in our time of need. Thus, our commitment to Children’s Heart Foundation began.
Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are the most common birth defect in America, affecting approximately 40,000 babies born each year. Nearly twice as many children die from a CHD than from all childhood cancers combined, yet funding for CHDs is 5 times less. CHF has worked hard over the past 16 yrs to support children with CHDs.
You can help us make a difference by supporting the We Maggie Golf Tournament. Your support will help fund research and education, assist families with transportation, food or lodging for surgery appointments, or send a child to camp. Your support also helps fund Maggie’s Garden, a whimsical room full of toys, butterflies, flowers and a tall oak tree. A child about to undergo a heart procedure is invited to visit to choose a toy; our hope is that this will provide a positive experience during a particularly difficult time.
Since our inaugural tournament in 2009, more than $800,000 has been raised and hundreds of Heart Kids have been impacted. Please help us keep these numbers growing!
