Ellie Goulding puts heart into Great North Run

Ellie GouldingSinger Ellie Goulding joined our fantastic team of Heart Runners at the BUPA Great North Run this weekend.

The Starry Eyed singer was one of 1,200 Heart Runners taking part in the popular event which kicked off in Newcastle and ends by the coast at South Shields.

Together the team hope to raise more than £420,500 to help beat heart disease through our vital research and prevention work.

Head of Events Nancy Prior said: “The Great North Run is a major fundraising event for the BHF and thanks must go to all the Heart Runners and their sponsors for their support. The funds raised will ensure the BHF can continue to save lives through our pioneering research.”
