Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Heart diseases are the leading cause of mortality in most countries. A quarter of all mortality is attributable to such diseases. I read this in some research, but like most of us, choose to ignore it. However, the reality of the situation hit home when a close friend of mine suddenly passed away from related complications last year.
We need more research to understand the heart. More importantly, awareness is vital to a healthy lifestyle and a happy heart. Britsh Heart Foundation (BHF) is the leading charity that works towards awareness and research about heart diseases.
Through my 54 miles (87 km) cycle ride from London to Brighton in the UK, I am trying to raise awareness and essential funds for the BHF. Your donations would power their life-saving research into inherited heart conditions and coronary heart diseases.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
I am training hard for this... please show your support by donating heartily. Remember, every little helps.
