February is World Heart Month and to celebrate each year we run our ROCK RED FRIDAY campaign.
Are you a school, family, community group or a business/workplace? Well you can #RockRedFriday on Friday 9th February 2024!
February is Heart Awareness Month and we would be delighted if you can host a red themed day to show your support.
Our dedicated Rock Red day is Friday 9th February but you can have it on any day which suits you. Simply rock something red and go as wild or as wacky as you like. Whether it’s stripy socks, a fancy hat or spraying your hair red – anything goes. All with the aim of raising funds and vital awareness of congenital heart disease (CHD), Northern Ireland’s most common birth defect.
This year we have a fun filled fundraising pack to help you and your fundraising efforts. Simply click here to register and we will be in touch with your fundraising pack!
Don’t forget to tag us on your socials using #RockRedFriday to celebrate our amazing heart warriors and raise awareness of Congenital Heart Disease in children.
If you wish to support our services further, you can ask family, friends and work colleagues to also wear red and make a donation. Why not add a donate button to your facebook page when posting about #RockRedFriday or create a Rock Red Facebook Fundraiser?
Any funds raised will enable us to provide practical and emotional support to local children and young people with congenital heart disease, like Heart Mum Julie explains:
“Telling us that we weren’t alone, no matter what happened in our journey you would be there to help. With so much to worry about, that reassurance meant the world to us!” Heart Mum Julie Marley.
Every pound raised will help us to support the 200 babies which will be born with congenital heart disease in this year.
We look forward to having you sign up and take part!
