JVs Big Heart Fundraiser

By Sarah Dadd

The Tamworth Roosters and Kangaroos AFL teams are hosting an event!

We're passionate about saving Australian Hearts and we need your help to create change. In 2019 our local football community was rocked by the sudden and unexpected loss of 16 year old Jacob Vallender from a heart attack. Jacob was an active and valued member of the Roos and the Roosters, an avid fisher, and a keen cricketer. Above all, he was a loved son, brother, teammate and friend.That’s why we are fundraising for the Heart Foundation – and we hope you’ll support us 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 us 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.

Thank you to my Supporters
