Dare to plunge into a spa pool filled with icy water for 5 minutes to help the 12 babies born with a heart defect every week in NZ?

Heart Stopper Challenge is a fun fundraising event of @Heart, the only charity in NZ dedicated to providing lifelong support for heart kids and their families.

The inspiration behind the Heart Stopper plunge into an icy pool is the 450 open-heart surgeries that are performed annually on children in NZ – some of these babies in their first days of life. Surgeons use an icy slush to slow the metabolism during surgery, to allow a longer window of operating time.

All you need to do is to form a team of 4-6, dress in crazy costume and have a laugh whilst raising funds for heart kids and their families.

Register a team, set up your online fundraising page or sponsor a plunger at www.heartstopper.org.nz
