Step2 Continues Supporting Research on Congenital Heart Defects in Babies

Step2.TropicalIslandResortStep2 Company, in continued support for the efforts of the Saving tiny Hearts Society (StHS), which is committed to funding research on congenital heart defects (CHD), is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its Tropical Island Resort water table. This year in the U.S. alone, 40,000 babies will be born with a CHD, making it the country’s number one birth defect. The condition affects nearly 1 million babies each year.

Myles has a scar from his three previous open-heart surgeries—the results of being born with a severe complex congenital heart disease, single ventricle. He is based on the two-year-old son of a Step2 employee.
