Northern Beaches Social Riders and the Heart Beads Program
In December 2012 HeartKids Australia was invited to attend an evening that all members of the Northern Beaches Social Riders (NSBR) club had worked extremely hard for throughout the year. Plaques & appreciation certificates were presented to those who supported the Club throughout the year. As as part of the formalities, NBSR presented Jann Kingston, HeartKids Australia CEO, with another donation of $20,000 to fund the Heart Beads program.
The Heart Beads Program hopes to enrich the experience of Heartkids & their families at children’s hospitals
throughout Australia. Children are rewarded with distinctive beads specific to each procedure or treatment they receive.
The children feel a sense of achievement for their courage & the beads help them tell their story.
Each child’s beads are special & unique to them. The beads are a reward for all the hardships the children face in
their hospital stay & the children look forward to receiving them. Children are able to trace their unique journey & tell
their story through the beads. The beads help the children talk about their experiences & forge relationships with
other children. Both boys & girls enjoy the benefits of the program.
HeartKids Australia would like to take this opportunity to thank the Northern Beaches Social Riders club for their ongoing support, we truly appreciate your help in raising money and awareness to support children with heart disease and their families.
