The Children's Hospital at Westmead will soon be piloting a new smartphone app that allows patients and families to see their upcoming appointments and, in future, to access important documentation and education. Some patients at the Heart Centre for Children will be invited to try this app starting from late May.

The 5th annual 24-hour soccer marathon was held in Dural this weekend and the team far exceeded their fundraising goal, bringing in an incredible $105,000, to be shared between Neurology, the Cancer Centre and the Heart Centre for Children.
It was a fun day/night/day for everyone involved, and a good run-around for The Children's Hospital at Westmead's "kids vs adults" game between 2 and 4pm on Saturday. It was heartwarming to be part of such an active, inclusive event that has provided us with the funds to really make a difference to patients and families. This event just keeps getting better each year. We're already looking forward to what 2017 will bring.

Harley was one of our patients who sadly passed away just recently. His family and friends are honouring his life by selling "Harley is my Heart Hero" t-shirts and doing a series of fundraisers.
The Facebook page is available here, including Harley's story. The family made the news with their fundraising efforts, and we cannot thank them enough for supporting the work that we do at the Heart Centre for Children. Harley's memory will certainly live on.

This year's Ride Your Heart Out 80km cycle challenge raised a huge $12,000 for the Heart Centre for Children. A big thank you to Omar Eter and Eahab Arja who came and presented us with the cheque today. They are pictured here with Dr Christian Turner, one of our cardiologists.
We're already looking forward to the 2017 challenge, scheduled for late February next year. Head to http://www.rideyourheartout.com.au/ for more information.
