Run for your health, run from the heart

Dear *[FNAME]*,

Today we woke up to another lockdown in Melbourne and we know it’s tough. Our thoughts are with our community as we navigate our way through another round of restrictions while the global pandemic prevails. Our thoughts are also with our neighbors in Timor-Leste who are also struggling to effectively tackle COVID19. We recently provided PPE to our heart health partners in Timor-Leste to support their immediate need while we continue to adapt our heart services to support heart patients waiting for surgery.

You can still train!

We’re passionate about your heart health and we hope you still take some time to get outdoors and walk or jog around your neighborhood during lockdown. If you haven’t registered already, please register your team today for this year’s 2021 Run Melbourne. Keeping fit while supporting our neighbors in Timor-Leste is a great motivator to rally your family and friends to help patients to access life-saving healthcare.

Your run can help save a life

Every day, 1 in 28 people in Timor-Leste live with rheumatic heart disease, a condition that is often treatable and preventable. There are currently no cardiac clinical services in the country. People die every day due to poor access to heart health services.

East Timor Hearts Fund is Australia's only medical NGO dedicated to providing life-saving heart surgery for people from Timor-Leste as well as heart-health education, prevention and research projects. Every dollar you raise will be directed to services that can help improve access to heart health services in Timor-Leste. This year we want to raise $20,000 to provide surgery to save a heart patient’s life.

Grab your runners and get moving

Now more than ever, we need to support heart patients in Timor-Leste so they can have life-saving heart surgery. Please register today and help raise funds so we can reach our target of $20,000 and provide heart surgery to save a patient’s life.

Together we can do this.
