Shake a bucket 2019 has now finished

22 May 2019 - 31 Dec 2019

Every child born with a heart defect needs to be brave, often on a daily basis. 

Each year:

  • Over 600 babies will be born with one or more heart defects.
  • Over 550 major heart surgeries will be carried out on heart kids in the national children’s hospital in Auckland.
  • 1,000 children will visit Auckland’s Paediatric Heart Unit for Treatment.
  • Heart Kids will support thousands of parents and children who need help and support.  Many of whom will need very different levels of support at different times on their journey.
  • All over the country, Heart Kids Family Support staff will sit with new families who have just learned that their child has a heart defect, and help them face their new realities.

Heart Kids needs your support.  Families cannot walk the journey alone, and we need your help to ensure that every heart child and their family receives the help and support they need.
