Children with half a working heart show extraordinary bravery every single day, from going through multiple open heart surgeries to fighting to keep up with their friends. Could you be a #HalfAHeartHero and take on a brave challenge for children with half a working heart?

This year, we are asking you to put on your superhero capes and do something incredible for the families we support. Inspired by the incredible bravery that heart children show every day, gather all your courage, take the plunge and cross skydiving, running a marathon or even climbing Kilimanjaro off your bucket list to raise funds for Little Hearts Matter.

Jumping out of a plane not for you? We know that bravery comes in many forms. Whether it’s shaving off your beloved beard, holding your first ever coffee morning or eating the spiciest chilli you can find, there are lots of ways to be a #HalfAHeartHero. The only limit is your courage. Whatever your fear, conquer it for a worthy cause and Be Brave for LHM!
