Each year we are involved in a number of events and fundraisers that help us to raise money for things like new equipment and research. Without the support of the community, we could not do our best work.
Here's a list of what we have coming up:
6 July 2013
Glen and Nichole Crosbie will be doing the Gold Coast Suncorp Run in early July, in memory of their son Mosiah and to raise funds for the Heart Centre for Children. To read about their journey and to support Glen and Nichole's fundraiser, click here.
27 July 2013
Organised by a group of Mums in Newcastle, this black tie gala dinner which is raising funds for a new cardiac ultrasound (echo) machine for us promises to be quite an evening. Dr John Hewson, a renowned economist, businessman, politician and media commentator, will be the guest speaker on the evening. There will also be a range of live entertainment and charity auctions (including some very nice artwork and cases of wine). For more information, visit www.zippertickers.com.
11 August 2013
One of the biggest fun runs/walks in the world, an 'Incredible' team from the Heart Centre for Children will be running, walking or crawling from Sydney city to Bondi beach, up Heartbreak Hill and back down again. All funds raised will go directly to the Heart Centre. You can support us (and see our 'Incredible' team) at https://city2surf2013.everydayhero.com/au/the-pacemakers
25 August 2013
Two weeks later, some of the same dedicated staff will be joined by friends, family and fans of the Heart Centre at the 2013 Sydney Color Run, where we will be pelted with bursts of colour while making our way around the 5km track. If rumours are anything to go by, it is one of the craziest and most fun running events around so we're looking forward to giggling ourselves green and running ourselves red while raising some funds for the Heart Centre. To join our team head to http://thecolorrun.com/australia/sydney/ and find the Heart Centre for Children team. To support our team via an online donation, click here.
13 September 2013
The irrepressible Carol Caleo and her amazing team (including her two sons) heard that we were in need of a new echo machine and so they put their thinking caps on and came up with the idea of a big gala dinner with lots of great charity auctions. This will be held at the Sofitel in Sydney and is sure to be an entertaining soiree, with auction items including two live cows (yes, cows!). For more information, go to www.echogaladinner.com
With two of our machines getting older and growing numbers of patients in our clinics, we are very much in need of two new cardiac ultrasound (echo) machines. Various donations and fundraisers have helped us to raise some money towards this. If you would like to make a direct donation, click here.
