Why your fundraising is so important

Before the British Heart Foundation was founded 4 in 5 children born with congenital heart disease died before their first birthday. Today in the UK, thanks to research, 4 in 5 survive into adulthood. Thank you for choosing this challenge and for helping us beat heartbreak forever.
