About Super Boss Day

Super Boss Day is a fun initiative where bosses, teachers, principles, students and co-workers dress as a superhero for a day to raise funds for HeartKids to support children with heart disease and their families.

  • Simply register yourself  and/or encourage others to join in the fun and register a team.

  • By raising funds, you get to dress up as your favourite superhero on Super Boss Day!

  • It’s a lot of fun, a great way to involve your staff, colleagues or school kids and at the same time raise funds for HeartKids.

Once registered, you will receive your own fundraising page, which you can share with your family and friends, to ask them to support your cause! For more tips & tricks on how you can get started click here.

 

We understand that the current Coronavirus restrictions may impact the day, so we are hoping to provide some light relief, by looking at ways we can have people interacting as virtual heroes.

It is a great way to boost morale and have some fun if we are still all in lock down or a new way to get more people involved if we are back at work!  

Some initial virtual ideas are:

  • Stay connected with your workmates/friends and family at this time of isolation by having them sponsor you to be a Hero for HeartKids.

  • Virtual morning teas/lunches/drinks with your workmates, dress up and fundraise

  • Post photos/funny videos from home of you being superheroes while in isolation – working from home funny moments/juggling work with kids etc while dressed as a superhero!

  • Superhero challenges against your workmates (from home) for a prize or trophy for best fundraiser

  • Dress up as a super hero using things around the house – toilet paper (!), clothes, kitchen utensils.

  • Superhero toilet paper challenges – more to come

  • Superhero fitness challenge – 10,000 steps while at home etc

  • Schools stay connected through superhero dress ups from home shared on school intranet.

Testimonials:

"HeartKids Super Boss Day is a fun and memorable event however the amount of lycra seen in the office was both terrifying and hilarious! It was worth the spray tan and wigs, as we were able to contribute significantly (thanks to our sponsors and suppliers) to HeartKids who continue to caringly assist one of our colleagues after the birth of his daughter with congenital heart disease”. 
(Sarah Rowley - Independent Cement and Lime Group)

“HeartKids is a great organisation that provides invaluable support to kids and families affected by congenital heart disease. My family has had first-hand experience of the great service HeartKids provides and so I jumped at the chance to raise money through Super Boss Day . It was great fun to dress up as Batman for the day at work and it certainly generated lots of awareness of HeartKids along with many generous donations. I look forward to you joining me dressing up as your favourite superhero this year to raise money for HeartKids!!” (Adam Malaspina - BHP Billiton)

“Super Boss Day was great fun, it brought a lot of smiles to the faces of my colleagues as well as raising much needed funds and awareness for heart kids within my local community. I look forward to supporting HeartKids Super Boss Day again this year”. (Adam Sorrell - Ray White Rowville (pictured below))
