that saves lives. In 1961 the number of children born with
a heart defect who survived to their first birthday was around only
20 per cent. Today that figure is 80 per cent, thanks to procedures
such as valve replacement that help them lead improved lives.
For all our success, there's a lot still to be done. Heart
disease is still the UK's single biggest killer. Surgery techniques
can still be improved. And there are exciting developments in
genetics and stem cell technology.
Your entry fee covers the cost of organising
the event; so join the fight for every heartbeat by raising funds.
Your fundraising will help us continue funding research to
ensure hearts keep beating.
