This February, we invite you to wear RED for someone close to your heart.

Heart disease is still Australia’s leading cause of death and affects families and communities around the country.

REDFEB is a month dedicated to raising awareness for heart health and raising much-needed funds for research.

Can you help us fund life-saving breakthroughs to help us keep families together for longer?

Getting involved is as simple as wearing red and donating.

How you can help

Wear red, tell people why and start a conversation about heart health.

Donate to help fund life-saving research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.

Sign up to fundraise! Get your friends, families or colleagues together, wear red and help raise awareness and funds!

Help us make breakthroughs happen and reduce the devastation heart disease causes families and communities.

At just 58, Danny Herbert tragically passed away from a heart attack. Motivated by their loss, Danny’s family and friends decided to raise awareness about heart disease, particularly in farming communities where health checkups are often overlooked. Danny’s wonderful wife, Sue, shared their story during REDFEB and as well as their amazing fundraising total – a staggering $13,000 – generated an enormous amount of awareness surrounding heart disease and the importance of getting checked out.

Thank you so much to the Herbert family, for turning your tragedy into something so positive.

We are thrilled that Australia’s favourite parenting expert, Maggie Dent and cardiologist Associate Professor Monique Watts joined us for a special webinar! They shared their experiences and expertise, shedding light on the importance of prioritising your heart health, taking swift action and having regular check ups – as well as cost effective ways to look after your heart.
