Raise money

We want to put a stop to the devastation caused by heart disease, through our live saving research and we rely on your fundraising to ensure this work can continue. Together we will improve the lives of babies born with heart defects, find the genes that cause inherited heart conditions and one day find a cure for heart failure and heart disease.

We are asking everyone to raise at least £50 per person in sponsorship from this event.

Creating an online fundraising page is the easiest way to raise money. It takes a few minutes to set up and you can then share the link easily with family and friends via social media and email. Remember, you're taking part in an amazing challenge - people will want to support you.

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.
