“5K Family FUN Run” at Nuffield Health Preston on Sunday 29th July supporting Heartbeats’s 40th Anniversary
Despite the awful weather on Sunday, buckets of rain, and with so many away on holiday, 15 took part which included young children!
The event raised over £100 and still counting! Thanks to everybody who was involved!
Heart disease is the UK’s biggest killer with 1 in 4 people affected.
Heartbeat’s schools programme last year involved over 3,500 young people and also trained more than 200 people in emergency life support skills!
It costs just over £1,000,000 every year to run Heartbeat services all of which comes from voluntary donations and fundraising from people like you!
Heartbeat receive no financial support from the Government, or the NHS, so every penny raised like this event really does count!
Special mention to Jess Wilcock the Duty Manager, Nuffield Gym, who organised the run, and Mel Blackmore one of their Personal Trainers who took part in the run.
Well done everybody who took part, special mention to the children, who are a credit to their parents.
Finally, thanks to Donna Clifford who used to work for the Lancashire Post who took the photos, thanks Donna.

Heartbeat would like to say another huge thank you to John Gibson, Sports Consultant & Volunteer Sports Events Fundraiser for Charity, who wrote this Press Release and also made the Nuffield Gym and Heartbeat partnership possible!
