My name is Josh Peters, I am a Manager at Waltlec Industries. I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I have decided to put my hand up for Heartkids and nominated for "Fight for your cause 2017" on Saturday 14th October 2017. Please come along and support all these great people who are joining me in this generous cause.
I am aiming to raise much needed funds for Heartkids. Everyday in Australia 8 children are born with a childhood heart disease and unfortunately every week 4 young children die from its consequences. Trust me it does happen!!!
A little bit about why I chose Heartkids. I'm a father of a Heart Angel, my daughter Sofia was sick and attended Townsville Hospital, diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy at 12 weeks old. Life was turned into a cyclone, we were airlifted to Lady Cilento in Brisbane where we spent 3 weeks in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Sadly Sofia's heart couldn't take anymore and she passed away. During our time we were contacted by Heartkids representatives and learnt that it is a charity focused on improving the lives and futures of those affected by childhood heart disease They do this by providing high quality, caring support, information and advocacy and to give hope by driving world class research. Although nothing could take away the pain Heartkids did as much as possible to help us out and for this I am forever grateful.
All funds raised via this page will go directly to Heartkids, please dig deep and help out as much as you can.
Please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity. Personally it means a lot to me
