Challenge yourself and make a splash for Heart Kids!

Heart Kids’ awesome Heart Stopper Challenge is back for 2015!  It’s your chance to make a real difference for kids born with childhood heart defects in your community – so sign up today!

Each week in New Zealand, 12 babies are born with congenital heart defects.  That’s over 600 little hearts and courageous fighters each year that need your support. 

Every year over 450 open heart surgeries are performed on children - some of these are on babies in their first days of life.

Heart Kids NZ is the only charity providing support to these children and their families every step of the way, throughout their lives.


What does the Heart Stopper Challenge involve?

Teams of 4-6 people submerge themselves in a pool, lake or ocean of icy winter-like temperatures for 5 minutes. It sounds hard, but as thousands of plungers can tell you, it’s a lot of fun!

Create a team theme, come in fancy dress and make sure your plunging efforts are supported.  The goal is to raise as much money for Heart Kids and these special children as you can.

Promote yourself and your team using social media, word of mouth and everything and anything in-between to ensure each team member raises what they can (we ask that team members raise $200+ each, and we can help you get there).

Did we mention there will be fantastic PRIZES for Best Team Costume, Top Fundraiser and Team Spirit?
