Heart Research Australia is 100% community funded, relying heavily on the generosity and financial support from not only our wonderful community supporters, but also from the corporate sector.
We are incredibly fortunate to work with organisations who share our mission to reduce the devastating impact of heart disease.
ICAP Charity Day
Heart Research Australia was selected as a beneficiary of ICAP’S Global Charity Day in Sydney on Wednesday 9th December 2015. ICAP brokers dressed in fancy dress costumes instead of wearing their usual business suits. Charity ambassadors including Heart Research Australia’s ambassador Chris Russell, helped the brokers execute trades and 100% of commission and profits from the day’s work were given to 14 other charities. In 60+ offices around the world and thanks to the efforts of ICAP customers, staff and suppliers, a fantastic £7.5 million was raised in 2015, bringing the total amount raised over 23 years to nearly £127 million for charities worldwide. ICAP Sydney’s generous donation to Heart Research Australia was allocated towards Dr Paul Bonnitcha’s research into using MRI to identify arteries at risk of blockage. Paul is one of our most talented early career researchers and is a radiation oncology registrar at RPA Hospital and Sydney Medical School Foundation Fellow based at Royal North Shore Hospital.
Heart Research Australia board member Charlie Frew OAM also presented Heart Research Australia’s corporate wellness program, Heart Health Matters to ICAP staff in October. The Heart Health Matters program empowers employees with heart health information and offers advice on how to live a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Anytime Fitness and Anytime Vision
We are very fortunate to have the support from Australia’s number one health club Anytime Fitness, along with their media and partnership company Anytime Vision for our annual REDFEB campaign.
The national gym group support and assist Heart Research Australia in raising awareness of heart disease in Australia by promoting REDFEB to their 500,000 members through sponsored adverts on their digital advertising screens.
This partnership is a perfect synergy of two organisations joining forces with one goal in mind – to empower Australians to be healthier and promoting REDFEB as the ideal platform to do this.
Norths Rugby Club
Heart disease is the No 1 killer of all Australians, killing four times more women than breast cancer and three times more men than prostate cancer. A fact most people are unaware of. That’s why Norths Rugby chose Heart Research Australia as its official community partner – to help raise awareness about the importance of heart health for all Australians and support innovative first-stage research to create more heart survivors.
The partnership began in 2010 with the aim to spread the message that heart research matters, and in doing so, promote Norths mission ‘To better the person, to better the player, to better the Community’.
Independent creative agency Ink Project was awarded the account for Heart Research Australia, tasked to prepare the market and generate engagement for REDFEB, building brand recognition prior to activation in 2016.
Not only are the team from Ink extremely passionate about the importance of heart health; more importantly, their support of Heart Research Australia is also reflected in their charity friendly agency fees, which afford us the opportunity to work with them.
These companies lead the way by example, demonstrating their support of life-saving heart research. Thank you for your ongoing support.
