HeartKids SA (part of HeartKids Australia) is registered charity that focusses on heart disease in children. Most of us have been fortunate enough never to have lost a child through heart disease, but there are many families out there who go through the stress and trauma of such an experience. HeartKids are there to provide support to such families as well as donating money into children's hospitals and research.
On Sunday 18th September 2011, the annual City to Bay Fun Run was held. I ran for a group called "Amber's Army", raising funds for HeartKids SA. HeartKids SA is definitely a worthy cause, and there are plenty of other ways that you can get involved. You can donate to HeartKids at any time throughout the year by just visiting their website, or you can organise your own fundraiser to help them out.
