Open Hearts – Mend Hearts  is a fundraiser for The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF). As a part of  Open Hearts – Mend Hearts, you will have the opportunity to fund the most promising congenital heart defect research. CHF has funded over $6.3 million of vital, life-saving research since its inception. Approximately 40,000 children in the U.S. are born with a Congenital Heart Defect each year. We’ll open our hearts through yoga to bring awareness and life-saving research dollars for these children.
