Heart and circulatory disease is one of the UK’s biggest killers. For over 50 years the British Heart Foundation has been funding life saving research to help stop the sudden and unexpected devastation that heart and circulatory disease causes. Together with your support the BHF has helped to half the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease but today 435 people will still lose their lives to it. This is unacceptable – but together we can change it. Join the heart runners team at Richmond RunFest and help the British Heart Foundation run all over heart disease.
