The Heart Foundation is New Zealand’s heart health charity. We fund research and promote heart health, helping New Zealanders to live fulfilled lifetimes. We are steadfast in our goal to stop New Zealanders dying prematurely from heart disease.
Since we started 45 years ago, heart disease death rates in New Zealand have halved and stroke death rates have almost halved. Despite these tremendous advances, these diseases still account for more than 40% of all deaths in New Zealand each year, many of which are premature and preventable. With your help we can continue the fight against heart disease - the single biggest killer of men and women.
Each of us is born with the most precious gift. A lifetime.
And each is unique because each of us fills their life differently; different experiences, relationships and, of course, choices - big ones and lots of little ones.
The heart is our engine, our furnace, the source of who we are. It is the start and finish of everything we do, have done and are still yet to achieve.
We're the Heart Foundation. We're determined to stop the insidious creep of the disease that shuts down more lives of New Zealanders than any other. Disease that chokes the heart and cuts short too many stories before they're told.
There is so much good that we can fill our lives with if we choose, and we've got a lifetime to do it.
Fulfil a lifetime. The time is now.
