Alex Reid is warming up to go the distance
Mixed martial artist, Alex Reid, is
about to take on the challenge of a lifetime - by running the
Virgin London Marathon to help raise vital funds for us.
Alex will be donning his official BHF Heart Runners
vest and running the 26.2 mile course on 22 April. He is
hoping to raise as much money as possible to help us fight heart
disease – the UK’s biggest killer.
I’m running for the BHF as my dad had a heart attack two years ago. I know firsthand how important heart health is
Alex says: “I’m
running for the BHF as my dad had a heart
two years ago and received fantastic care. I know first
hand how important heart health is and I can’t wait to take on the
challenge of running a marathon. I am delighted I can help
raise awareness of heart disease
encourage lots of support and vital funds.”

Karen McDonnell, our Events Project Manager, said: "It’s only
with the support of people like Alex, who challenge themselves to
raise funds for us, that we will be able to beat heart
"We wish all our Heart Runners the best of luck for the
event and look forward to seeing you at the finish
