Become a Hero of the Heart!

Interested in fundraising for the Heart Research Institute (NZ)? 

Cardiovascular disease is New Zealand's (and the world’s) number one killer, accounting for around 30 per cent of all deaths in New Zealand. The Heart Research institute is at the forefront of cutting edge research, to reduce the number of people dying or suffering from cardiovascular disease.
