What we do:

HEART UK is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting people with high cholesterol and their families which affects over half of UK adults. We work to prevent avoidable and early deaths caused by cholesterol leading to heart disease, stroke and vascular dementia. Our helpline, run by specialist cardiac nurse and a dietitian, provides much-needed help, advice and support to those affected. We're committed to raising awareness about the risks of high cholesterol, lobbying for better detection of those at risk and supporting healthcare professional training to improve early detection.

By joining our team, you'll make a real difference to the lives of those affected by high cholesterol, helping us to keep hearts running.

All successful runners commit to raising at least £1750 in sponsorship for HEART UK. We allocate our places based on strength of application, so please include as much detail as possible when filling out your form.
