Fearless Physical Activity is a joint project of the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance and Dr. Pat Longmuir of the CHEO Research Institute. The goal of the project is to provide children, teens and adults born with heart problems with an opportunity to enjoy a variety of physical activities that are suited to their heart condition. The Fearless events also provide an opportunity to meet other families affected by congenital heart disease and learn about the resources and supports available through the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance.
