How your fundraising helps

Our work has transformed heart attack care, progressed genetic testing for inherited heart conditions and developed new treatments for babies born with heart defects.

Before the British Heart Foundation, only one in five babies with heart problems survived more than a year - but our life saving heart research has changed this. Now, four in five babies born with heart problems get the chance to go to school.

We couldn't do this without your support, but we still need your help. Surgery techniques can still be improved. Many babies still struggle with a congenital heart defect. And there are exciting developments in genetics and stem cell technology yet to be found, which could revolutionise the treatment of many heart conditions.

So why not get your school or group signed up to Jump Rope For Heart and help fundraise for life saving research? 

We rely entirely on our supporters to fund our research. Only with you by our side can we keep fighting. With your support we’ll continue to develop new treatments, transform care and ultimately find a way to beat heart disease for good. Thank you.
