Martin Issatt runs to say thank you to Heartbeat

Martin 11

Press Release

Date: October 2017

Martin, 49 from Chipping, wanted to give something back to Heartbeat after attending rehabilitation classes at the centre within PNE.

In Spring 2017 Martin started to feel unwell and after several visits to the hospital in June 2017 he had a double heart bypass. After his operation Martin was referred to Heartbeat for his rehabilitation classes.

 

Martin said, “Being diagnosed with heart disease was a huge shock, but after my surgery I found the Heartbeat rehab program an invaluable part of my recovery, the team worked with me and gave me advice on training limits to help me achieve my goals, without the program I don’t think I’d be as well as I feel now.”

Martin previously enjoyed taking part in challenges such as Bad Ass Mucker 10k in 2015 and in 2014 and 2013 he took part in Para10 which is a 10-mile endurance run organised by the Parachute Regiment and was physically fit when he began to feel unwell. Martin has got a family history of heart disease; however, it took Martin by surprise when he was told he had to have a double heart bypass.

Lisa Riding Heartbeat fundraiser said, “Martin has decided to take part in the Morecambe 10k later this year to raise funds for Heartbeat. This will mark his 12-month anniversary after having his heart bypass. Martin has found his recovery difficult not only physically, but emotionally to, so this really will be a challenge for him and we can’t thank him enough. He is a true inspiration to us all.”

Martin is now a member of the Cardiac Athletes and took part in his 1st 5k run in Oct 2017, just four months after his operation. If you would like to support Martin who will be running with his brother and fellow Cardiac Athlete and Heartbeat supporter Darren Nicholls please visit Martin’s Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/martin-issatt2

If like Martin, you would like to became a Heartbeat hero please contact Lisa Riding in fundraising on 01772 717147 or email lisa@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk.

We still have places available in the Great Manchester half marathon and 10k taking place on Sunday 20th May 2018. Please contact Lisa lisa@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk.

Heartbeat helps over 900 people every week through its cardiac rehabilitation sessions in Preston and the surrounding area which currently costs over 1 million pounds per year and is entirely funded from voluntary donations.
