The British Heart Foundation is a brilliant charity that supports and helps millions of people with heart related illness every year. The research they carry out is providing a better and healthier future for everyone. Their research looks into faster and more accurate treatments of conditions as well as educating the population to keep their hearts healthy.
I have chosen to run the Manchester 10k because I wanted to challenge myself to do it, I have never run any kind of distance before and thought it would be a good thing to work towards, and running for charity means that I can raise money for a charity thats is close to me.
Heart related illness and heart attacks have been very close to my family and me throughout my life so far. So supporting the British Heart Foundation means that the money raised can help fund treatment, research and development for everyone that needs help now, and for people that may need help in the future.
