The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on everyone in the South West to mark National Walking Month this May by signing up to Just Walk to help raise money for life saving research.

Just Walk invites family, friends and colleagues to put their best foot forward and arrange a walk in a location, time and distance of their choice to help raise money in the fight against heart disease. 

Every three minutes another family loses a loved one to heart and circulatory disease.  Every stride taken and every pound raised will help the BHF fund vital research that will bring us closer to ending this devastation.

Lisa Young, Physical Activity specialist at the BHF said: “Walking is a fantastic way to keep active and maintain a healthy heart as it is fun, flexible and free.

“By taking part in Just Walk you can help us to support the 7 million people living with heart and circulatory disease in the UK.  You can walk wherever and whenever suits you and remember every pound you raise will fund research that’s so urgently needed to help us beat heart disease.”
