The Dronfield 10k for the British Heart Foundation
Fundraising for British Heart Foundation
We power research into heart disease to beat the UK’s single biggest killer
Charity Registration No. 225971
Very little is known about this fairly rare condition, but 80% of the known cases are in women. And 30% of the cases are in women in their third trimester or in someone who has recently given birth. SCAD affects the young, fit and healthy and can happen at any moment.
In 2014 the British Heart Foundation funded the UK's first ever research project into SCAD, at the NIHR Leicester Cardiovascular Biomedical Research Unit, part of the University of Leicester. This pioneering research project, lead by Dr David Adlam, is aimed at trying to help find answers about this condition.
That's why on Sunday 19th March our family are taking part in the Dronfield 10K in memory of Mum/Carole while helping to raise money for the British Heart Foundation to support them in all the great work they do with this, and many other, devastating conditions. Any donation will be truly appreciated. Thank you.
