Hey fun, adventurous people,

Welcome to the 360 Heart Stopper Challenge 2018!

Our ‘refreshing’ signature event has been running all around the country for well over 10 years. Thousands of warmhearted people over the last decade have put their brave face on and taken the plunge to help little kiwi kids born with heart defects.

What is the 360 Heart Stopper Challenge?

The 360 Heart Stopper Challenge is a simple, fun event where you can challenge yourself and do a lot of good at the same time. Grab some friends or workmates, think of a fun team name and costume share your fundraising page with your friends, family and networks to raise as many dollars as you can and come along and take your turn and finally, come along to the event and take your turn with many other adventurous plungers to sit in a pool of water nicely chilled to 10° for 360 seconds. It’s really cool!

Yes, it’s a challenge, but we know you can do it and you’ll be able to say that your warm heart has helped so many little hearts that need support.
