Phoenix heart walk event chooses Tempe Diablo Stadium

Posted

The Adult Congenital Heart Association will have its annual Phoenix Walk for 1 in 100 on Sunday, Nov. 6, at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe.

The event will feature face painting, a photo booth, giant Connect Four, Jenga and cornhole, as well as a heart-themed scavenger hunt to raise awareness for adult congenital heart disease.

Scottsdale restaurant Salt Cellar and Kona Ice will provide refreshments.

Check-in for the event at the stadium, located at 2200 W Alameda Drive,  begins at 9 a.m., with the opening ceremony kicking off at 10 a.m. 

“Walk for 1 in 100 helps to energize our network of patients with congenital heart disease, supporters and medical professionals in communities across the country and to increase knowledge of the specialized care that those born with heart defects need throughout their lifetimes,” Mark Roeder, president and CEO of ACHA, stated in a release.

“After we transitioned all walk events in 2020 and 2021 to virtual to keep our community safe, we look forward to meeting new friends in-person in all our Walk for 1 in 100 communities this year.”

Funds generated through the Phoenix walk will support the ACHA Adult Congenital Heart Disease Accreditation Program, which is working to elevate and standardize care for people living with ACHD nationwide, the release stated.

In addition, Walk for 1 in 100 funds “cutting-edge medical research, advocacy efforts and various educational and outreach initiatives.”
