Our mission is to end heartbreak from heart and circulatory diseases. We are funding research that really will help save lives and so we're asking everyone to raise at least £10 per kilometre from this event to ensure our research can continue.

Create your fundraising page

We know fundraising can be quite a challenge, and it isn't always easy asking friends and family to sponsor you. Take a look at our fundraising guide for more ideas, tips and support to help you smash your target. 

Matched Giving

Lots of companies operate Matched Giving schemes that can double the amount of money you raise. Find out if your employer operates a scheme and if they will match what you raise. Remind them that it’s tax efficient for them and it benefits the BHF.
