Every week, 12 babies are born with a heart defect in New Zealand. Whilst there are surgical procedures that can improve the heart's function, there is no cure for a Congenital Heart Disease (CHD).

Heart Kids NZ is the only charity that supports Kiwi children and families affected by CHD, right through their life.

Heart Kids NZ receives no government funding. We have to fundraise for all the services we provide.

If you need more information or just someone to talk to, please call us on free phone 0800 543 943.


Sign up for NZ’s iconic cycling event and Cycle for Heart Kids

Heart Kids NZ is the Official Charity of the Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge held on 29th November.

This premier cycling event has 20 categories, including road and mountain bike courses for individuals and teams, which cater to all ages and abilities. Register for the event at www.cyclechallenge.com

Whilst Heart Kids does not receive funds directly from the event itself, all riders are given the opportunity to cycle and fundraise for Heart Kids. 

Create a supporter page at http://www.everydayhero.co.nz/event/cycleforheartkids2014, share it far and wide with your family and friends and ask them to sponsor your effort.

You’ll be raising essential funds to give heart kids life-changing experiences at Camp Brave Hearts and Camp Teen Beat. You’ll also be helping to provide heart kids and their families with resources, information, vital family support that is not provided or funded by the government or any other New Zealand organisation.


Children with a heart condition will be treated to fantastic performances at the Heart Kids Day Out Variety Show to be held in February, March and April

Join us and help support Kiwi heart kids as you take on your own Cycle Challenge – it’s easy and you’ll be making a huge difference as you ride.
