Help end heart disease at Coastrek Mornington Peninsula

Volunteer with heart at Coastrek Mornington Peninsula 2024

Did you know that one Australian has a heart attack every nine minutes?

Many of us know or love someone who has been impacted by heart disease and it has a profound impact on those left behind.  Since last year, Coastrek has been exclusively supporting the Heart Foundation to prevent heart disease, and we need your help.

We’d love to welcome you to our community of amazing Volunteers who make a real difference in the important work of the Heart Foundation in supporting all hearts in Australia.

We are excited to offer a fantastic opportunity for individuals or teams of people to become the heart and soul of Coastrek Mornington Peninsula in 2024.

Coastrek is held on Friday 24 May along stunning Mornington Peninsula locations including:

·       Cape Schanck

·       Point Nepean

·       Sorrento

The Event

Thousands of trekkers in teams of four will challenge themselves to hike for healthy hearts

and raise life-saving funds for the Heart Foundation.

Join us for a fun and exciting day on the coast and connect with like-minded people whilst boosting your well-being with a sense of accomplishment from making a difference in your community.

Volunteer Position: Event Day Assistant

Event Day Assistants help keep participants safe and energised by guiding them along the route, cheering them on, and running rest stations. No trekking or hiking is involved when you volunteer. Coastrek is helping charity on a Friday, so it’s a great opportunity to join up with your team for your corporate volunteer leave.

You bring the vibe and help us to make sure that these events are incredible for the Coastrekkers and raise vital funds for life-saving Heart Foundation initiatives.

Your support will be recognised not just with incredible views and a memorable experience, you will also receive:

·       Free entry into Coastrek 2025

·       Heart Foundation branded merchandise

·       Discount voucher to our Heart Foundation online shop

·       Lunch for shifts of 4+ hours

·       Recognition from the Heart Foundation


We are looking for volunteers to help at this incredible event during morning, afternoon, and evening shifts at a range of spectacular locations between Cape Schanck, Point Nepean and Sorrento. There’s a shift to suit everyone and we have welcomed many small corporate teams to volunteer together at our other events. Maybe this one is for you!
