A marathon effort to look after Australian hearts
We all know or love someone who has been impacted by heart disease.
And in a world where they are now at even greater risk, funding research for
better prevention and treatment of heart disease is more important than ever.
Now there’s something everybody can do to help.
The Heart Foundation’s MyMarathon is a fitness and fundraising challenge that drives
you to run, jog or walk 42.2 kilometres at your own pace during October, while helping
to raise vital funds for lifesaving heart disease research.
Where does the money go?
By running, jogging or walking a marathon during October,
you are not only looking after your own heart health.
The biggest prize is the impact you’re having by raising money to help the
Heart Foundation fund lifesaving heart disease research.
Here are a few ways your participation in MyMarathon will be helping Australian hearts:
could pay for nutrient
to help grow heart cells.
could pay for a DNA
test to help pinpoint
for heart disease.
could cover the cost of
an antibody to detect viral
or bacterial infection
in the heart.
