Our group is for people who have been through it, going through it and have got through it. We say stay up feel blessed and stay positive. We meet other local people affected by heart disease for education, support, and motivation to make healthy changes.We have our regular Saturday walk, come rain or shine at 7 AM at Albert Park bundall Road. Bundall tai chi Tuesday and Thursday. Tennis Wednesday. Light gym exercises all these to try and stay healthy. As for supporting others some members do hospital visits, we have a presence at the Robina Hospital rehab section. Talks at Bond University and we try and visit our own members if they are not well There is no pressure everyone has different limitations on how much they can or cannot do.
. At our monthly meeting which most of the time are quite informal. We have a public speaker such as a dietician, psychologists, cardiologists, centrelink and many other interesting community based organisations. Our meetings in get-togethers are always followed by tea and coffee, chat time and a chance to interreact with other members. Now that was on the side to stay healthy. We also believe that laughter and fun is part of the recuperating process. For that we have monthly coffee mornings. Barbecues, tenpin bowling, special occasions of get-togethers, outings etc.
For our group to run smoothly, we tried to be self sufficient with finance and for that we do some fundraising being mainly barbecues at Bunnings. For that we asked that any able-bodied member volunteers some of their time to help with those projects
