Heart disease is still the leading cause of death in Australia, killing one Australian every 12 minutes and affecting 2 out of 3 families.

That’s why we need everyone to wear something RED on National Wear Red Day, Wednesday, February 14, 2018, encourage others to do the same and raise money to help us continue to support our researchers in their quest to find new ways of keeping hearts beating for longer. 

It’s so easy. Show us your RED. Share your photos.

Wear something red, organise your entire office or school to wear red, hold a red breakfast tea, paint your neighbourhood red, organise a neighbourhood walk wearing red, dress your family up in red…or even your pets!

However you choose to shine in red, take photos and share them using the hashtag  #WEARREDDAY
