Ailian Evans, CHF Board member and founder of Team Nolan, expressed her gratitude for His Excellency Governor Martyn Roper’s continued support of their initiatives “It is an honor having him participate in our third annual beach walk and we thank him and all our loyal supporters for their continued support over the years” said Ms.Evans, “There is no cure for CHD’s, but treatment can be as simple as prescribed medication, to surgery and heart transplants. Our mission is to raise awareness about CHD in the community and financially assist local families with CHD babies.”

This year’s beach walk is sponsored by Davenport Development, Doctors Hospital, Health City, Walkers, Fosters, Vistra, Baraud Development, and Logic just to name a few.
