Run for Heart Research

By Billy Cockbain

My Activity Tracking


My target 110 kms

In July 2014 my Dad (aged 51) suddenly passed away from heart disease causing a heart attack. He loved cycling and MTB riding to keep fit and healthy. I want to raise money for heart research and technology development on behalf of my dad so maybe in the future, other families won’t have to go through losing their loved one due to heart disease. I will be challenging myself to run from Oxley Park in Port Macquarie to Scotts Head Surf Life Saving Club on the 5th of October 2024. 

I’ve taken on a challenge to Do it for Heart!

I’m passionate about saving Australian Hearts and I need your help to create change. That’s why I’m fundraising for the Heart Foundation – and I hope you’ll support me in this.

Heart disease remains Australia’s biggest killer, claiming 48 lives every day. Your donation will help the Heart Foundation to transform Australia’s heart health by:

  • Funding life-changing heart research

  • Supporting health professionals working to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease

  • Providing heart-healthy programs and resources for everyday Australians.

Please make a donation today, click the donate button. Every donation, big or small will help me get closer to my goal.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you’ll get a receipt by email as soon as you make your donation

Thank you for your support.
