PERTH employers will undergo a transformation of superhuman proportions as part of HeartKids Super Boss Day this Friday May 26.

Super Boss Day allows bosses to become a superhero for while raising money to support families and children living with Childhood Heart Disease (CHD).

Bosses can register themselves or be nominated by staff, friends and family.

While they may not be saving the world, those taking part will be making a difference to the lives of thousands of WA children living with CHD.

“There is a superhero inside everyone,” HeartKids State Manager Cecilia Donovan said.

“A hero doesn’t need to fly, become invisible or have super strength — our heroes are those who generously help us in our fight against CHD.

“Super Boss Day is all about encouraging people to show their lighter side in support of those children and families living with CHD.

“We’d love to see as many workplaces to get involved as possible and show their support for this very worthwhile cause.

“Eight babies a day are born with a heart defect in Australia, and sadly four little lives are lost each week. “

All proceeds raised on Super Boss Day will help fund lifesaving research into CHD, as well as providing vital support services to children and families living with the disease.
