Take an icy plunge to help kids born with a heart condition in this fun, unique fundraising event. Form a team of 4-6 people, dress in fancy costume and plunge into an icy spa pool for five minutes while raising money for the 12 kids born with a congenital heart condition every week in NZ.

Register a team or sponsor a plunger for the Auckland event at http://www.heartstopper.org.nz/event/heartstopperauckland2012.

Money raised will help to support heart kids and their families staying on the Paediatric Cardiac Ward in Auckland and at home through @Heart’s Family Support Programme.

Every year, 450 open heart surgeries are performed on children in NZ, some of them in their first days of life. During the surgery a child’s chest cavity can be filled with an icy slush to slow the heart rate and metabolism, giving the surgeon a longer window of operating time. This is the inspiration for Heart Stopper Challenge of @Heart, the only organisation in NZ dedicated to supporting heart kids through life.
