Fitness fanatics go on a walk and raise funds for British Heart Foundation

Solihull Editorial 24th Jul, 2018   0

HEART attack sufferers and stroke survivors put their best foot forward on a series of walks in aid of the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

The Hampton health and fitness club in Hampton in Arden and the Warwick BHF Fundraising Group raised £1,552 at a walking event for older gym members and supporters of the charity.

Walkers included heart attack and stroke survivors, people who have undergone heart surgery and those who have lost loved ones to cardio vascular disease.

Hilary Hollingsworth, a gym member said “I really enjoyed doing my bit for the BHF, a charity that means a lot to me and my family.”

Over five sessions the group walked 149,000 steps as measured by pedometers, easily beating the target of 100,000 steps.

Paul Ebrey, Director of The Hampton, said “We’re delighted to have raised an incredible £1,552 for the BHF’s life-saving research.

“We were lucky with the weather and so grateful to our members coming together to fight heart disease, so thank you to everyone who made it a success.”
