Enduring for better health
23 year old Eloise Thompson was young, fit and otherwise healthy but experienced a heart scare after collapsing twice at the Gold Coast Marathon.
“As a cardiac nurse I've seen too many families torn apart by heart disease. I wanted my friends and loved ones to know that a heart attack can strike at any age, even if you're fighting fit. And just one young life lost, is a life too many” Eloise Thompson.
Eloise had her heart checked by expert cardiologists at the Baker Institute to rule out any question marks. After getting the all clear, Eloise made her triathlon debut at the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 Geelong, competing in the Team to Beat and helping to raise over $50,000 for life-saving heart research.
