Will you take the plunge for broken little hearts?

Each week in New Zealand, 12 babies are born with one or more childhood heart defects. Their little hearts are literally broken. That’s over 600 courageous little fighters each year that need help.

Heart Kids NZ is the only charity providing vital support to these children and their families throughout the ongoing challenges they will face.

Kilos of ice
Total seconds plunged

Funds raised so far in 2020

We need your support to help change their lives.

360 seconds is all it takes from you to make a difference…. and a little bit of cold water nicely chilled to 10 degrees.

Simply grab a team of up to six kind hearted workmates, friends or family and join a 360 Heart Stopper event near you.

We’ll make it easy and provide the icy water. All you need to do is get sponsored for your efforts and get ready for a fun event, all for a very worthy cause.

The 360 Heart Stopper Challenge is free to enter and requires no athletic prowess – just brave and passionate people who are willing to have a little heart for little fighters all around the country!
