Team Captain Caden’s Cardiac Warriors Philly Spin-In 2024

Ride for Breakthroughs for Little Hearts!

I am raising money to support innovative cardiac research for kids at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). With your help, we can better understand the causes of pediatric heart disease, develop new treatments, improve long-term outcomes and offer new hope to families who need it most.

Join the movement!

Why I Ride

  • Little hearts need us:  The world slowed down, but parents are still hearing the words “your child has congenital heart disease.” 1 in every 120 babies born in the United States are diagnosed with congenital heart disease, and in May of 2023, we found out that our sweet baby boy was one of them. We received exceptional care at CHOP's Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment / Fetal Heart Program and are thankful every single day that we had access to the innovation and expertise that effectively changed the trajectory of his extremely rare heart condition. Every little heart deserves the level of care that our Caden received, and continues to receive today.
  • Together, we’ll create a breakthrough for every child: "The Philly-Spin-In not only inspires the Cardiac Center team to continue our pursuit of clinical excellence, but the funding the event generates also allows us to push new boundaries of research and patient care initiatives that help define the future of pediatric heart care." – Dr. Jonathan Chen

How You Can Help

“From the bottom of all the hearts we touch, from the bottom of all the hearts we work on, from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you.”
