Heart disease is the single biggest killer of men and women in New Zealand.

For this very reason, the Heart Foundation is calling on nationwide support for its upcoming appeal.

"While the Heart Foundation is committed to tackling heart disease in New Zealand, we can't do it alone,” says medical director Gerry Devlin.

“Our volunteers around the country make a huge difference in our ability to help.”

They are searching for people to volunteer as street collectors for the “Big Heart Appeal” on Friday, February 21, and Saturday, February 22.

Gerry says that a few hours of a volunteer’s time on the day is huge and plays a vital role in the fight against heart disease.

"We are calling on big-hearted Kiwi’s all around New Zealand to volunteer a few hours of their time to help collect funds to support our vital research and work in the community.”

Funds raised during the Heart Foundation's annual appeal are used to support life-saving heart research and specialist training for cardiologists, he says.
