What is Two Feet & A Heartbeat?

HeartKids Two Feet & A Heartbeat is a 4km walk, in honour of the four lives lost to congenital heart disease every week in Australia. Those keen to take on a greater challenge can choose to do the course twice, and tackle 8km in recognition of the eight babies born with congenital heart disease every day.

Participants walk side by side with HeartKids families and every walker carries a coloured flag:

  • Blue is carried by those living with congenital heart disease
  • Red by those walking in support 
  • White by those walking in memory of a Heart Angel (deceased loved one)

 

The walk concludes with a period of silence in memory of our Heart Angels. Families have the opportunity to come forward and place flowers during this emotional time for reflection.

A true sense of community surrounds the day as families enjoy picnics, face painting, jumping castles and other fun, family friendly food and entertainment following the walk.

Walks take place in major capital cities and local communities across the country. In 2018 we aim to have 5,000 participants across all events!

Why Participate?

Congenital heart disease is one of the leading causes of death of Australian babies. There is no known cure, and those living with congenital heart disease face unique challenges for their entire life. HeartKids needs your help to fund vital support services for these families, all across Australia.

HeartKids Two Feet & A Heartbeat is a 4km walk, in honour of the four lives lost to congenital heart disease every week in Australia. Or, you can do the course twice and tackle 8km in recognition of the eight babies born with congenital heart disease every day. Importantly, this event is a tribute and celebration of lives lost to congenital heart disease.

The walk concludes with a moving Heart Angel memorial ceremony.

Being part of this event is a truly special experience. You will walk alongside impacted local families and get a true sense of your contribution to the cause.
