Support the Heart Foundation at this year’s Melbourne Marathon
Could you go one bigger than crossing the finishing line in the Melbourne Marathon?
How about running to raise money for the Heart Foundation? We are proud to mark our fourth year as the Melbourne Marathon’s charity partner. The Heart Foundation team is looking forward to supporting you along the way and on event day at our marquee in the Team Village.
Melbourne Marathon is being held on Sunday, 13 October. This year’s event route runs past Albert Park Lake, Flinders Street Station, the St Kilda beach foreshore and finally to the finishing line at the mighty MCG.

Everything that we do at the Heart Foundation is made possible through the support of everyday Australians. We rely on community generosity to:
- fund world-leading research
- develop care guidelines for health professionals
- support high-quality care for people living with heart disease
- help Australians to live heart-healthy lifestyles

We’ve been fighting for Aussie hearts for more than 60 years: we welcome your support.
