When you do MyMarathon, every run will make you stronger. And every donation, no matter what the amount, gets us closer to the next lifesaving breakthrough in heart research.

Where the money goes

We’re deeply appreciative of the support given to us by so many big-hearted Australians. Every donation helps in the fight against heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in Australia.

Our work includes funding world-class cardiovascular research, guiding health professionals, educating Australians to make healthy choices, and supporting people living with heart conditions.

Here’s an idea of how donations make a real difference:


can help a researcher isolate and understand blood cells, to prevent dangerous blood clots


can pay for a DNA test that can help determine the genetic factors that are important in heart disease


can pay for a research assistant for one day to help a cardiovascular researcher continue their lifesaving work.


could cover the cost of an MRI scan, which examines damage and abnormalities in the structure and function of the heart


can pay for a CT angiogram to allow a researcher to examine the arteries that supply blood to the heart.
