The Race to Beat Iron Overload Kicks Off!

Today is the official start of the Haemochromatosis Australia Race to Beat Iron Overload!?

The online virtual balloon race runs from September 1 to 7 and aims to raise $100,000 for resources and research. The balloons will take off virtually from the Sydney Harbour Bridge in conditions based on real weather!

As the Co-Convenor of the Parliamentary Friends of Haemochromatosis, I’m looking forward to seeing my little balloon ‘Forrest’ compete!
