Please see note below regarding COVID-19.
We've created this team because we want to raise money and make a difference! In 2020, Team Spinnaker will be raising funds for vital heart and lung transplant research. Please help us by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button.
The funds raised can also help Heart and Lung Research Institute of WA researcher, Richard Hunt, who is investigating how to prevent serious complications after heart surgery. Please donate to help our patients having heart surgery.
