West Australians across the state are encouraged to register for the annual HeartKids Two Feet & A Heartbeat charity walk on Sunday, October 17 to help raise funds for kids living with congenital heart disease (CHD).
The 4km or 8km walk is an opportunity for HeartKids supporters, friends and families to come together in support for the eight Australian babies who are born with congenital heart disease each day and reflect on the four Heart Angels who sadly pass away each week.
In 2021 Australians can register to participate in a covid-safe community event in Perth, Broome, Bunbury, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, and Pannawonica. Prior to the walk, a ceremony will take place to pay tribute to Heart Angels, then the walk will conclude with entertainment.
A virtual experience featuring online activities will also be offered to make the annual event more inclusive for those who can’t make it to a physical location due to proximity or circumstances.
