Northern NSW Football has partnered with Heartbeat of Football on Heart Health Round happening this weekend.
“Heart Health Round is about positive heart health, healthy choices and raising funds for heart research. We have heaps of activities happening right across northern NSW and we're so grateful to the clubs who have put their hands up for heart health," NNSWF Community Football Manager Ross Hicks said.
According to Heartbeat of Football, 25,000 people have a cardiac arrest out of hospital in Australia every year. Heart Health Round aims to achieve zero heart-related deaths on sporting grounds with the support of football clubs and volunteers.
Northern NSW Football encourages all players, supporters and volunteers to wear red and make a difference in the lives of those affected by heart disease and sudden cardiac arrest.
Several key Australian footballing personalities have thrown their support behind Heart Health Round with Tim Cahill, Caitlin Foord and Heather Garriock providing messages of encouragement for clubs to get behind the campaign.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to be part of the Heart Health Round campaign.
