sam karlsen The Royal Brompton and Harefield Trust is a world leader in treating heart and lung disease. The two hospitals house Europe's largest adult congenital heart disease unit, Europe's largest Cystic Fibrosis treatment centre and one of the world's largest and most experienced centres for heart and lung transplants. This run is in support of the MitraClip appeal which aims to change the lives of 10 patients, too weak for invasive surgery.

These hospitals mean a great deal to me and my family, as it was them who saved my brother when he was born with heart problems, and is the very same place my sister now works. sam karlsen
