Fundraising for the British Heart Foundation
Wilmslow Wellbeing Walks
I’m raising money for the British Heart Foundation during February 2018 and I’d be so grateful for your support.
The BHF is the nation’s heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research, which has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer but they are leading the fight against it.
The British Heart Foundation has awarded £1million over the next 5 years to continue its support for The National Prevention Research Initiative, a collaboration between government departments, research councils and medical charities to encourage research into the prevention of heart disease.
This grass-roots work is vital to improving the health of people in the UK. For example, some projects are looking at particular communities and ways to encourage them to incorporate better lifestyle choices in their daily routine – such as walking, using green space, and healthier eating, particularly for children.
“I’m starting up regular Wellbeing Walks in Wilmslow”
The aim is to become more active and manage our weight. We will meet up and then go for an hour Nordic Walking.
“Nordic Walking involves the upper body more making it a whole body exercise.”
I will provide the poles and information from the BHF to support us in making lifestyle changes.
The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It’s only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £25 could pay for an hour of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target.
