Girls Got Heart is led by founders, best friends and passionate cyclists – Keely Mancini and Rebecca East. The girls met in Brisbane through their young children and have been friends since; they share similar life goals and have a strong commitment to healthy living, staying fit and inspiring others around them.
A charity event in late 2016 in Meandarra, Western Queensland, led the girls to Dr Rolf Gomes and the struggles of limited medical support in rural and isolated Queensland communities. This touched their hearts and as a consequence, Girls Got Heart was launched as a platform to create awareness of this issue and create change where possible.
People living in rural and remote communities are 70% more likely to die from heart failure than their city-dwelling counterparts. The mission of Girls Got Heart is to expand the reach of much needed health services for rural and remote Queensland communities.
Keely and Rebecca would like to thank each and every one of you for supporting them on this crazy yet vital journey. We are so fortunate to live in a city with everything we need at the tip of our finger tips.
With heart we ride for rural health – These Girls Got Heart
