HeartKids & Wellness on time 

Wellness on Time introduces 28 Days of Wellness

Starts 1 October 2019

Sign up and every day for 28 days you will receive wellness activities delivered directly to your inbox.

Easily integrate wellness into your every day.

We all have reasons why we don’t move our bodies (aka exercise). The most common reason for not finding ways to move throughout the day is, time. The best way to change a habit is to replace it with a better one and Wellness on Time make it easy. No lock in contracts or fees. Sign up for the 28 days of Wellness for only $28. Specially curated activities, with professional instructors teaching a range of modalities.

Register now and help to raise money for a good cause - for every person who signs up for 28 days of Wellness they are giving 10% of proceeds to Heartkids. Visit for more information.

We thank those of you who have offered to help sell raffle tickets in the past, we hope to have your help again this year. We are also looking for new families or individuals who can sell as many tickets as you can in your local community. Maybe you have a school, sporting club, extended family and friends that you can sell to. Tickets are on sale until 10th January, 2020 so plenty of time to sell. The raffle will be drawn on 9th February, 2020 at Ballarat Showgrounds.
