As it’s national Heart Month, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) is encouraging runners to help accelerate the fight against heart disease, by signing up to one of its events. There are over 80 challenge events both in the UK and around the world.
With a huge selection of challenges for all physical abilities, from fun runs and marathons, walks and treks, to the BHF’s prestigious cycling series, there’s no reason not to get involved this year. By taking on a challenge you could help the BHF fund half a billion pounds of life saving research in the next five years and find new ways to beat heart disease.
Shonali Rodrigues from the British Heart Foundation said: “Too many lives are lost to heart disease each year. You can be a champion by taking on one of our legendary challenge events and help us power vital research that could make a difference to millions.
“It’s a fantastic way to get active, keep motivated, whilst helping us make a difference to millions.”
