The Global Gathering is the Children’s HeartLink signature hybrid fundraising event. People from around the world gather to celebrate the heart of our mission – saving children’s lives by transforming pediatric heart care in underserved parts of the world.

We invite you to spend a few hours with us in October! Join us virtually or in person in Minnesota to hear lifesaving and inspiring stories, bid on worldly auction items and enjoy lively entertainment. Invite your friends and family to join us, and together we will raise funds to reach more children around the world in need of lifesaving heart care.




Last year’s Global (re)Gathering event was a success thanks to the generosity of so many.
Supporters like you make it possible for us to serve children like Mythili who was born with congenital heart disease.




For more than 50 years, Children’s HeartLink has been healing hearts worldwide and making a difference in the lives of children in underserved parts of the world. We train thousands of health care professionals annually to screen, diagnose and treat children with heart disease at their local hospitals. In 2021, our partner hospitals in Brazil, China, India, Malaysia and Vietnam served 122,000 children with heart defects and performed 8,800 heart surgeries. Read more about our 2021 accomplishments.
