Super Boss Day for Heart Kids
Eight kids will be born with heart disease in Australia today!
It’s a sobering thought, and it’s the reason Matthews Steer supports Heart Kids, a non-profit organisation focused on Childhood Heart Disease (CHD), with a number of fundraising events each year.
On Monday, March 7, three members of the Mathews Steer team will become heroes for HeartKids, donning spandex, eye masks and capes for Super Boss Day, an initiative that sees bosses and co-workers dress as superheroes to raise money to support children with heart disease, and their families.
In 2015 Matthews Steer raised more than $5000 on Super Boss Day and Matthews Steer General Manager Catherine Duncan (AKA Poison Ivy) says the initiative is a lighthearted way to make a meaningful contribution to a serious cause. “Super Boss Day is just a heap of fun for a day, and a great way to raise awareness and have a laugh in the process. The Heart Kids team makes their cause very real and present by staging great events where a speaker who previously benefited from support explains what it meant to them and their family. That means we see first-hand who’s received support from the contributions we make.”
Matthews Steer Head of Private Wealth Anthony Flapper (AKA The Hulk) says Super Boss Day is a great event for a special cause. “The opportunity to be a Super Hero is something we may all dream of, but the real heroes are those suffering from CHD. That’s why we get behind Super Boss Day and encourage our friends, family and colleagues to make much-needed contributions.
Matthews Steer Associate Stephen Wooster says he’s looking forward to donning a cape for the kids on Friday. “Matthews Steer has supported Heart Kids over many years now and I’m constantly inspired by the stories of support and hope given to families of those in need,” he says. “Super Boss Day is a great way to help raise some money and have a bit of fun doing it. After all, what kid doesn’t hope that the super hero comes and saves the day?”
Thanks to Heart Kids more than 32,000 adults have lived with heart defects since childhood. You can add to that number by donating generously to help make a difference for all the little super heroes out there who are doing it tough each and everyday.
