We call our fundraisers Heroes of the Heart

Cardiovascular disease is Australia’s (and the world’s) number one killer, affecting 2 in 3 Australian families. The Heart Research institute is at the forefront of cutting edge research,  to reduce the number of people dying or suffering from cardiovascular disease.

Our mission is to improve human health by understanding the causes and complications of cardiovascular disease and we need help from heroes like you.



The 'Pacemakers' participate in various fun runs to raise vital funds for heart research
