We are really grateful for the support of everyone who choose to run in any type of event for ECHO and raise money – the reality is we receive no government or NHS funding to carry out our work and we therefore do need to raise money in order to continue supporting heart families.
ECHO is there for families from the moment of diagnosis, throughout every stage of their heart journey. With your help, we can continue to provide practical and emotional support and information to parents, carers, children, young people and their families at times when they need it most.
Your fundraising can help us to support families by phone and email, provide guides and resources to help families understand what to expect, send ECHO Care packs for families staying in hospital while their child is poorly, and run online sessions for young people.
