Heart to Heart

By Katrina & Joey Umback

By Katrina Umback

Our Why

We are hiking for hearts across Cradle Mountain in Tasmania in November in memory of our Husband and Dad, Scott Umback, who lost his life to a heart attack on Australia Day in 2019 at the young age of 42. We want to help the Heart Foundation in the fight against heart disease and try to help others from experiencing what we have. 

I’m hosting an event!

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.
