Queensland Election 2020

Every day 15 Queenslanders die of heart disease. Fight to save Queensland Hearts.

Heart disease is a leading killer in Australia and every day 15 Queenslanders die of heart disease. If you are a Queenslander supporting the Fight to save Queensland Hearts you`re in the right place.

Show your support and get involved

Help us ensure that funds and support continue to be invested in the Fight to save Queensland Hearts. Take a selfie with your hand on your heart and this will act as your pledge of  support for the Fight to save Queensland Hearts. 

We'll update the wall regularly and share this information with Queensland candidates to ensure they know how important heart health is to their electorate.

Be sure to ask your friends and family to do the same.

Join other Queenslanders in showing your support
