Story

I set myself the C2C challenge (140M) to support the Bristol Heart Institute (BHI) so more people can benefit from their life saving expertise and dedicated care to help people recover from heart surgery.

I luckily recruited a group of fun friends to join in the ride  (whilst raising those valuable funds!)  

Thanks to my training partner and navigator Vicky Runcie, along with David & Catherine Graham, Graham & Alison Teague and of course, lead logistics and top driver Mark H! We'll be ready to hit the road from 20-23 June.

Here are just a few examples of the wonderful projects that supporters have helped to fund at the Bristol Heart Institute:  -  let's help them continue their good work  -  thank you for every penny.

CorKnot devices to assist surgeons carrying out intricate keyhole procedures such as heart valve surgery.

 A new echocardiography facility. Staff at the cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) and the coronary care unit (CCU) are delighted with the new unit, which is only a few metres away from both wards. 

Previously up to 10 patients a day were making the long trip to the old facility. Lead Echocardiographer at the BHI, said: “Some patients needing echocardiography scans are very high risk so have to be continually monitored during this process. Patients would need to be accompanied by a member of staff, which led to some scans being cancelled because we didn’t have the staff available to leave the ward for such a long period of time. The difference the new facility has made to staff wellbeing and patient care is huge.”

Thank you so much for your support.
