My team, the Heartstrings, and I are taking on a virtual challenge - Heart vs Lungs: Around the World in 30 Days. We'll be walking, running and cycling to help Team Heart get as far as possible around the world and beat Team Lungs!

Competition aside, this event is raising money for a fantastic appeal which will help anyone affected by inherited heart and lung conditions. Once complete, the appeal will buy equipment to help the genetics team expand their testing capacity so affected families can get treated sooner, and maybe avoid serious illness all together.

Please give what you can and I promise to cover some serious miles for Team Heart. Thank you. 💜
