Keeping families together for longer
Heart Research Australia supports world class and emerging researchers to conduct groundbreaking research into the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of Australia’s biggest killer – heart disease. As Heart Research Australia receives no government funding, our work is powered by the generosity from the private and corporate sectors.
Norths Rugby is a long-standing community partner of Heart Research Australia, with Norths President, Mr. Tony Crawford also being the Foundation’s Chairman. Through initiatives such as the Red Heart Rugby Day, Norths and Heart Research Australia are working together to raise much-needed funds for innovative new research into this deadly disease.
Heart disease kills one Australian every 27 minutes. That could be someone’s father, mother, daughter, son, friend or neighbour. Heart disease is largely preventable, and knowing your risks can be the first step to avoiding a heart attack. Heart Research Australia’s website offers valuable heart health information on how you can protect yourself from future heartache.
During the Winter season, the incidence of heart attacks is the highest. This Winter peak is likely due in part to the increased incidence of respiratory infections, as a recent study by Heart Research Australia’s Professor Geoffrey Tofler has found. He advises that people should take measures to reduce exposure to infection, including flu and pneumonia vaccines where appropriate. For further information click here.
Help raise vital funds by supporting Heart Research Australia at Norths game vs Manly on Saturday, 24 June by purchasing raffle tickets or the specially designed heart rugby socks that the players will also be wearing. The socks are $20 a pair and will be on sale at the Norths merchandising stand.
