Be Active. Have Adventures. Change Lives
Hearts Across Australia is all about adventure, dreams and having a positive impact on the world around us. It's about providing people with evidence that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things, and providing living examples of how anyone can reach for a dream and bring it to life.
It's the promotion of and advocacy for active lifestyles, the benefits of being fit and healthy, both physically and mentally. It's about living, and not simply existing.
Doing Good In The World
As well as encouraging individuals to take control of their lives, and to believe in their dreams, Hearts Across Australia encourages fundraising activities to accompany those things. So when someone is out there, living their own dream, and being an inspiration to others, they also have a direct impact on the world through fundraising via our charity partners.
How good is that? Getting out there, bringing your dreams to reality, and doing good at the same time!
How We Do It
Our focus is on running, walking and big hairy adventures. Whether it's taking part in an iconic Australian marathon, ticking off an international marathon bucket list item, or simply challenging yourself to step outside your comfort zone, we encourage you to be active, to tap into the power of running, walking and dreaming, and become an inspiration for others to follow!
When it comes to the fundraising, training and even planning side of things, Hearts Across Australia provides the support and advice you can only get from those who have "been there and done that". Whether it's ideas for fundraising activities, tips for training for your first marathon, or simply a desire to feel part of a team, HAA provides the backup and sense of community you are looking for.
What Exactly Are We?
Hearts Across Australia is a not-for-profit initiative, founded and based in Perth, Western Australia, with a network reaching out across the whole of Australia. We have supporters/members, also known as "#HAAmigos", and at the time of writing have an official partnership with the WA Heart Foundation, through which we are able to send teams to international marathon events (e.g. London, New York, Paris, Berlin), thereby raising money for the purchase and installation of Automated External Defibrillators.
