Heart Foundation Special Jogalong – Sunday 5 May
Did you know that almost three times as many women die of heart disease than of breast cancer and that women are more likely to die within one year of their first heart attack than men, regardless of age? However, many women think heart disease is a male health issue, and are not aware of the symptoms of a heart attack or what to do if they think they are having one. Come along to the Jogalong and find out from the Heart Foundation staff what women need to know about heart disease. The usual Jogalong events will be on offer – 1.6km Minijog for kids, 3km run and 6km handicap for women and girls. For more details visit their website.
