Jim Rosenthal urges supporters to put their best foot forward to beat heart disease

Jim RosenthalSports TV presenter and personality, Jim Rosenthal, is calling on people to step up to the challenge and take part in our new fundraising event, Heart Walks, to raise funds for our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.

Jim is asking people to put their best foot forward, regardless of age and fitness ability, and register to walk one of two routes in our Heart Walk series.

Participants can chose from a walk of under 2k and, for a bigger test, walkers can take on a walk of just under 10K. Join together with friends, neighbours and colleagues to walk scenic routes in your town or city. The events are taking place in eight Heart Towns.

Walking is a great way to help keep your heart healthy

Sports TV presenter Jim Rosenthal said: “I am proud to be supporting the Heart Walk series of events for the BHF. ”

He added: “Walking is a great way to help keep your heart healthy, so I am looking forward to a fun-filled day out with the family, all in the name of a great cause.”

Each walk is in aid of our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal, the most important research project we’ve undertaken. Every penny you raise will go towards groundbreaking research that could help us find new ways to repair and mend damaged hearts.

Free registration is now open and participants are asked to pledge to raise sponsorship.
