CA, Shane Warne Legacy set to partner for Boxing Day Test

MELBOURNE: Cricket Australia (CA) and the Shane Warne Legacy (SWL) will come together at the NRMA Insurance Boxing Day Test to tip their hat to ‘Warnie’ and raise awareness of heart health.

Shane Warne Legacy Heart Tests, provided by SiSU Health, will be available at 23 medical grade Health Stations in and around the MCG on days one to four of the Boxing Day Test.

The Shane Warne Legacy Heart Test is free, takes just four minutes to complete, and provides an indication of some heart and other health risk factors.
The SWL Heart Test includes blood pressure, resting heart rate and an estimate of heart age and diabetes risk (AUSDRISK).
Those who take the Shane Warne Legacy Heart Test and record high blood pressure or other risk factors are also encouraged to consult their GP about a Medicare subsidised Heart Health Check if aged 45 or over (30 and over for First Nations People).
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and a significant cause of death among women, with high blood pressure the leading global preventable risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Fans are also encouraged to wear a floppy hat to the Boxing Day Test, paying homage to a look made iconic by Warne as well as tipping their hat to Shane Warne at 3.50pm, a nod to Warne’s Test cap number.
