Heroes for Heart Kids

Waikato Heart Kids
27 September 2024 to 28 September 2024

Are you ready to be a superhero for a great cause? 🦸‍♀️

Heroes for Heart Kids – Heart Kids NZ’s annual street appeal, is taking place on Friday, 27 and Saturday, 28 September, and we need your help to make it a success!

We have locations across the motu and would love you to join our team of heart heroes making a positive difference in the lives of thousands of heart kids, teens, adults and families impacted by childhood heart conditions. Join us in dressing up as your favorite superhero and volunteer a couple of hours to "shake a bucket" with us (capes will be provided at collection sites for those who don’t have a stash of superhero gear).

Childhood heart conditions reach every community, and so do we. At Heart Kids NZ, we walk alongside families, providing crucial practical, emotional and social support so families never face the ongoing challenges of a heart journey alone. We provide support - free of charge - and receive no government funding. We are reliant on the generosity of kind-hearted supporters to fund our services, so that heart families are supported, connected, informed and hopeful for the future.
We can't do it alone, please join us for our annual street appeal and be a heart hero for heart kids this September.
