I have been working for the RBH&HH for just over 2 years now. I very much enjoy working for our organisation and see the various differences charitable contributions make towards patient experiences.

I heard about the run through a colleague at work. I decided to take part in the run this year for various reasons: mental health, physical health and to maybe be encouraging to anyone out there who things they can not run.

I also would like to raise awareness in heart conditions, which according to the British Heart foundation affects 7.6 million people in the UK alone. There are 450 cardiac related deaths every day, 100,000 hospital admissions each year due to heart attacks. Not forgetting to mention that someone somewhere in the UK will have a stroke every 5 minutes. Which is a lot really.

It would be very much appreciated if you are able to contribute by gifting the charity any amount you can manage to help make things less daunting for our patients.

Thank you so much.
