Your world is turned upside down when you find out your child has health problems, no less so when the heart is involved. This happens to at least 1,400 families every year, and often lifesaving operations are the only answer.
The Heartbeat Foundation organises one-day activities and holidays for families with a young heart patient and provide the necessary care at the same time. Fun and relaxation are paramount in all Heartbeat Foundation activities. The foundation organises the annual HeartRace Circuit Day – a day dedicated to racing on the Circuit of Zandvoort and HeartBallooning – culminating in a balloon ride. Other activities include HeartGolf for Kids – the children are playfully introduced to golf – and various visits to zoos and amusement parks.
