Challenging Heart Day
Challenging Heart Day is a challenging event for children with congenital heart disease (CHD) and also their parents.
The children, who have limits on exercise and have to protect from infection in daily life, leave their parents on the day and enjoy doing exercise through art themed “Challenge.”
In 2015 in the art workshop, they split into some teams and one of them painted the wheels of wooden push bike and ran over a canvas 4×5 m. The others painted balls and rolled them on it. Eventually, they made a huge
creation with a message “Thank you.”
In the music workshop, a music unit “UQiYO” had wrote a base of song before and they finished off the song with the children on that day. They recorded their voices of “What I want to do? Right now!” and the sound of
their hearts. At last, they showed the completed song to their parents.
They have a dream and a lot to do though they have the disease. Let’s spend Challenging Heart Day together.
