Heart Research UK

For over 50 years, Heart Research UK has funded pioneering research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease. Many things that we now take for granted, such as heart valves, angioplasty would not have been developed without our help.

Charity Registration No. 1044821

Story

In loving memory of our cherished Tim Fleming, an incredible Father, Husband, Grandfather, Brother & Son, and to each and all a dear friend, who died suddenly from an Aortic Dissection last year.

Dad spent this life lending a hand to those who needed help, offering advice, support and in his final few years of retirement helping others win back their livelihoods. Dad always held a deep seated belief that everyone was entitled to justice.  

We will both be taking on a number of first time running challenges in Dad's memory, to raise money for Heart Research UK which directly funds research into early diagnosis, improving the life of those who have suffered and ultimately preventing deaths from Aortic Dissection.
