Our first ‘Team Veber‘ fund-raising event for the BHF was on October 4th where we entered the Blenheim Palace 10k and Family Fun Run. We were amongst about 4,000 runners in a great atmosphere, the weather was gorgeous and Blenheim Palace made a magnificent back-drop for the event – the scene was set for winning!
A HUGE thank you to those of you who supported and sponsored us, we hit our r £1,000 target and beyond but we absolutely could not have done it without the support of our family, friends and you.
The picture below is ‘living’ proof of just how important the BHF is to so many families, we probably all have a story and know someone who has had medical treatment for a heart condition. .
Our mission is to win the fight against cardiovascular disease
Our vision is a world in which people do not die prematurely or suffer from cardiovascular disease.
“Today in the UK, around 480 people will go to hospital with a heart attack. About seven in ten will survive to return home. In 1961, when the BHF began, that would have been unthinkable. In those days the odds of survival, let alone recovery, from heart attack were poor.
“We led the fight to change that with pioneering research that paved the way for life-saving treatments. We’re not going to stand still and wait for progress to come. We’re going to drive the fight forward by expanding our research programme, accelerating discovery, and pushing for its translation into lifesaving benefits for all.”
