Clinical Trial – Fearless Physical Activity – Congenital Heart Disease

Fearless physical activity is fun. We hope that people who have congenital heart disease can do community-based sport without fear. Ontarians with CHD are a large and rapidly growing population. 1% of children are born with CHD, adding 1,440 new children to the 113,900 Ontarians of all ages who are living with CHD. ‘Fearless’, this program will target CHD children, youth or adults, while encouraging family-based participation. People with CHD lead mostly sedentary lives. they are much less active than their friends and colleagues, even if their heart disease is mild. We want to change the condition, reducing inactivity contributing to a higher risk for heart attacks, stroke, and depression.

The intervention is physical activity education.
