The Heart Foundation Heartmoves program ends as at 31 December 2016, after 16 years of getting thousands of Australian adults active.
We recognise that many referring health professionals, Heartmoves instructors and those who attend Heartmoves classes will be disappointed to hear this news, but we hope you and they will understand. Sadly, it has not been possible to find a sustainable financial model to support the program into the future.
Our national Heart Foundation Walking program continues to be a priority for the Heart Foundation. Walking is free and something that everyone can participate in. It has many of the physical and social benefits that regular participation in Heartmoves classes has. The Heart Foundation will be offering any Heartmoves program that wishes to establish a Heart Foundation Walking program a 50% discount on their Host Organisation fees. You can sign up online or call us on on 1300 36 27 87.
Please note: No Licensee or Instructor can use the trademarked brand of Heartmoves after 31 December 2016.
For more information, you can contact us via our Health Information Service on 1300 36 27 87.
