Sundays are ideal for a short walk with the family and this Sunday, the Bay beckons.
While walking for your own health and relaxation is a fab thing, walking for a cause, and the health of some of our bravest little souls is so much better.
The annual HeartKids Two Feet and A Heartbeat fundraiser strides out this Sunday to take steps towards beating Childhood Heart Disease (CHD), which is the leading cause of infant death in Australia.
“Despite its prevalence many people don’t know much about CHD,” said Brenna Chia, HeartKids
Fundraising and Events Manager SA/NT.
“This September we want to change that – we want to raise awareness of what the vast number of
HeartKids and their families go through, and how everyone is able to help.
“Did you know the human heart begins to beat just 21 days after conception and eight babies are
born every day in Australia with CHD? That’s why the course length is set as 2.1 kilometres, allowing
our HeartKid community to participate while raising the profile of these incredibly important facts.”
HeartKids assists families with financial, emotional and practical support while also supporting
research into the causes and treatment of CHD and heart defects.
The Two Feet and a Heartbeat charity walk will take place at Colley Reserve at Glenelg on September
10, with all funds going towards research, treatment and support services.
