Charity Fundraising event to support the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.

As many people think about the summer, this is way to put a spring in your step and run/walk now is the time to register for the Nuneaton and Bedworth Run For Your Heart 2016. The 5K charity Fun Run organised by the Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council (NBBC) with support from Nuneaton Harriers Athletics Club and everyone Active will take place on Sunday 17 April 2016 to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation (BHF), Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.  

The 5K Fun Run starts at 10.00am with the warm up commencing at 9.45am at Pingles Athletic Stadium. The circular route will encompass Riversley Park and parts of Nuneaton. Advance entry is available until 10 April and costs £5, on the day entry will cost £8.00. To guarantee a place, the quickest and easiest way is to register online via the BHF Website or pick up a registration form from the BHF shop in Nuneaton.

“It is a great time to register for the event as it gives people plenty of time to train and something to aim for. This is the fourth time this event has taken place and last year, nearly 200 people took part and raised over £5,500 for the charity. It’s an ideal opportunity for people to show their support to get together with friends, family, colleagues or simply challenge yourself. It does not matter if you walk, jog or run, what matters is that you take part, sign up to the challenge and raise sponsorship money to help the BHF raise essential funds to help save lives.

The aim of our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal is to raise enough money to fund the ground-breaking research that could help the heart to ‘heal itself’ and prevent thousands of people developing further heart problems. We all know someone who has been affected by heart disease, this is your opportunity to raise funds to support the research that can give them more hope for the future.”
