BEATING HEART DISEASE NOT JUST A WALK IN THE PARK
While Mothers all around the country were eating their breakfast in bed last Sunday, thousands of others were at 27 events around the country, out showing their support for the Heart Foundation at the Jennian Homes Mother’s Day Fun Run.
Thousands walked bright and early Sunday; kitted out in a sea of red shirts enjoying the 5km course with friends, family and colleagues as part of the nationwide initiative to raise funds and awareness for the Heart Foundation.
Jennian Homes Chief Operating Officer Aidan Jury says the company is a proud supporter of the Heart Foundation’s work, including being a major sponsor of the Heart Foundation Lottery and organising the Mother’s Day events around the country.
“Sadly, so many Kiwi families have their lives significantly changed due to significant heart health issues. If through funding valuable heart research we can help more families stay together then we have done our job,” he says.
“We encourage people to support the foundation whether it be through donations or sharing your time, it’s a cause that touches so many people it’s a real opportunity to make a difference.
Watching families come out and enjoy themselves on Mothers Day, is something we as the Jennian Group are so proud of, but we strive to ensure that awareness of the cause and the great job the Heart Foundation are doing goes far beyond the Jennian Homes Mothers Day Fun Run”
