While February is the month for hearts to be won over with flowers on Valentine’s Day, it’s also the month we’re all reminded to look after our heart health. Heart disease is the largest killer of Australians, affecting 2 out of 3 families. Heart Research Month aims to raise awareness about the impact of heart disease, and the need for continuing research. Our team at Professionals Arbee Real Estate would love to encourage Bacchus Marsh residents to put their heart into supporting heart health, by joining the RedFeb Relay.
The RedFeb Relay is ongoing throughout the month of February, so you can start now with plenty of time left to contribute! The aim of the RedFeb Relay is to get Australian’s active, while raising support for Heart Research Australia. You can either walk, run, cycle or swim, or use a pedometer to track your distance in any other preferred sport. The aim is to add in your kilometres to RedFeb’s community total, and help to make it one lap around Australia – which is equivalent to 27,650kms! Right now they’re at around 16,000km, so we’re already well over halfway!
All you have to do is:
1. Sign up here and enter your details.
2. Create your supporter page, add a photo and set your fundraising goal.
3. Share your page with your family and friends. Even better, pass the baton on and get them to sign up too!
4. Start tracking your kilometres and log back in to your fundraising page to add your kilometres.
We’d love to see Bacchus Marsh residents getting active this month, and with so many beautiful places to go walking, running and cycling in Bacchus Marsh, why wouldn’t you want to get outdoors, get some fresh air, and join the community in contributing to a great cause?

How will you be clocking up the km’s this February?
