Supercheap Auto becomes major partner of HeartKids Australia

Supercheap Auto today announced a multi-year partnership with HeartKids Australia that will help raise awareness, funding and support for children, teenagers and adults impacted by congenital heart disease.

Every three hours, a baby is born with congenital heart disease (CHD). That means 3,000 babies each year, and over 65,000 Australians, live with CHD*.

Supercheap Auto has made an immediate donation of $50,000 to HeartKids Australia and will launch a customer initiative that will provide opportunities for HeartKids Australia donations to be made at selected stores, as part of a broader community program.

All funds raised will go to HeartKids Australia, allowing them to help every Australian with congenital heart disease have a fighting chance to live a long, healthy and fulfilling life.

HeartKids Australia also provides funding to unite researchers, clinicians, heart kids, families and communities through world-leading research and action programs.
