Here’s to Sian!

Sian Triathlon 6

Our very own Heartbeat Hero, Sian, tackled the 2017 AJ Bell London Triathlon and conquered it, Olympic distance no less!!

Sian Tri 3.jpg

 

This Olympic triathlon course is a big event in the triathlon calendar, against really strong athletes.

Sian said… “I am absolutely made up with a time of 2:56, I loved every minute (the hardest part was getting out of my wetsuit) I had amazing support from the Heartbeat Team, my family and TSB.

So, onto the next challenge, it’s going to be a big one for Heartbeat’s 40th Birthday!”

Thank you 14“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who took time to wish me luck and to also sponsor me, I managed to raise more than £550 …. so, I am hoping to use that money specifically for a piece of kit for once of our gyms.”

Well done Sian! You’re an inspiration!

Huge thanks to TSB, who nominated Heartbeat to be one of their charities of the year for 2017. They kindly offered Heartbeat a place in the Triathlon. 100 TSB employees and 30 charity partners took part in the 2017 AJ Bell London Triathlon, raising funds for many great causes.

 

We’ve done it again!

We’ve won our 3rd consecutive Gold Cardiac Smart award

With the publicity over Fabrice Muamba’s cardiac arrest, the Oliver King Foundation’s petition, and with more common interest over Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), the dangers of heart health are at the forefront of the nation’s psyche.

The Cardiac Smart initiative promotes awareness of heart health, and awards community groups, organisations and individuals for their commitments to increasing this awareness within their local community or workplace.  The criteria for achieving each standard increase across the three levels of Bronze, Silver and Gold.

24 Hour National Three Peak Challenge in Memory of George

Ross Challenge

Former PNE player George Ross sadly passed away in May last year on the last day of the football season. His son, Andrew Ross, and four friends (Pete Smith, Jonathan Cuff, Adam Horabin, Paul Young and driver David Latham) are determined to take on the National Three Peaks challenge in memory of George on 16th June, and raise money for the heart charity Heartbeat.

Andrew said, “We are doing the National Three Peaks challenge in 24 hours or less, Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell (England) and Snowdon (Wales). I am doing it in memory of my dad and to try to raise a bit of cash for Heartbeat.” George attended Heartbeat for cardiac rehabilitation in Preston, for many years and was a great supporter of the charity.

G Ross

Michelle Hunt, Heartbeat’s Fundraising Manager said “On behalf of all of us at Heartbeat I would like thank Andrew for choosing to support us and allowing us to benefit from his efforts in this challenge in memory of George who was well known and loved by everyone at Heartbeat. The money that Andrew and his friends raise will go towards the on-going work provided to local people that require heart rehabilitation by providing an exercise-based Cardiac Rehabilitation programme, fully supervised by trained instructors, to those recovering from heart attack, surgery or stroke and supports those at risk of developing these conditions. We wish Andrew and his team the best of luck in this very difficult challenge.”

Lauren Conquers Another Challenge for Heartbeat!

L Hogg 3

On 6th May Heartbeat Hero Lauren Hogg took part at Rat Race 2017 Burghley Park, Stamford to raise money for Heartbeat, in memory of her Grandpa, Grant Williams.

L Hogg 6

Lauren said, “I took part in Rat Race 2017 to raise money for Heartbeat because they supported my Grandpa for many years.  I signed up to take part in another challenge which was sure to get my heart pumping! Last year I completed Total Warrior, which was 30 punishing obstacles over a 12k distance. There was a lot of mud along the way too!

This year going one BIG step further, there are a whopping 200 obstacles over a 20 mile distance to overcome.

Like last year, I was determined to push myself further following the massive support and generous donations from friends, family and even strangers. Heartbeat is solely funded by it’s own fundraising and donations from supporters and do not at present receive any external funding from the NHS or Government, so if I can do something to help I will be happy.

Heartbeat is the North West’s leading cardiac rehabilitation charity, providing services for over 700 people each week and has supported heart patients, my Grandpa included, and those at risk for over 35 years.

L Hogg 5

So far Lauren’s Rat Race Challenge has raised an amazing… £228.74!

Donating £5 will contribute to a cholesterol test. Donating £10 will contribute to a treadmill test. Donating £15 will contribute to an ECG test for a child.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
