“We Got the Beat” is a reunion held every two years in celebration and remembrance of children with congenital heart disease and their families, hosted by the University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center and Save A Heart, in partnership with the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center.
This reunion will bring families together from all over the country. The focus is to provide support, education and camaraderie in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Our activities reflect a country fair theme which includes pony rides, a ‘dunk the doctor’ tank, a rock climbing wall, bouncy houses, face painting, games and prizes.
Send us a design for our special celebration t-shirt! Try including U of M, the new Mott Hospital or this year’s focus on “My Doctor” in your design.
This contest is for kids with heart issues, ages 18 and under.

We are introducing our newest idea... “Meet Your Doctor” where children and their families can reunite with their University of Michigan doctors, take photos, and share stories.
This year, “We Got the Beat,” will be honoring one University of Michigan doctor who has made a difference in the lives of many children and their families – Dr. Edward L. Bove. To those that call him their doctor, he is a hero, and for those of them that know his name, he is a role model, a caring clinician, an outstanding teacher and a talented scientist. “We Got the Beat” and our friends at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center are proud to announce the establishment of a tribute to Dr. Bove’s remarkable legacy: The Edward L. Bove, M.D., Endowed Professorship in Cardiac Surgery.
Registration has been extended to June 15th @ 3:00pm, 2012 - Space is Limited!
