“I was shocked to learn that nearly three times more women die from coronary heart disease than breast cancer." Pippa explained.
Taking on a challenge
In June 2014, Pippa took to her bike over in the US to take on the epic 3,000-mile Race Across America cycling challenge. Alongside her brother and six friends, Pippa conquered the ride across 12 states and 88 counties in just eight days in a bid to raise funds for our life saving research
Pippa has since gone on to actively take part in numerous other challenges to raise money for us. On completion of her epic challenges, Pippa donated her signed bespoke bike, which was sold on our eBay site and raised over £3,000.
In January 2015, Pippa launched the 40th anniversary of our historic London to Brighton bike ride
. Pippa and her team completed the ride in 4 hours.
Fundraising for us
In order to help boost fundraising for the London to Brighton bike ride, Pippa collaborated with London fashion designer Tabitha Webb in June 2015 to create an exclusive floral tea dress and scarf to help raise money for our life saving research ahead of completing the London to Brighton bike ride.
Pippa also attended our February event Roll out the Red in 2016, where she welcomed host for the evening singer Mollie King.
Heartfelt, a heart healthy recipe book
In October 2016 Pippa launched Heartfelt in collaboration with the BHF. Featuring over 100 delicious, heart-healthy recipes, profits from the book go towards funding future research. The book is available from our online shop.
