The Great Cholesterol Challenge

To celebrate National Cholesterol Month, why not get involved with our Great Cholesterol Challenge

Theresa May (Shorter quote)
Theresa May

The Prime Minister and MP for Maidenhead, The Rt Hon Theresa May is lending her support for National Cholesterol Month:

"I congratulate HEART UK on the work they do to prevent premature deaths and the help they offer people with, and affected by high cholesterol. HEART UK’s work is vital for our nation’s health and I am pleased to give them my support"

National Cholesterol Month 2017

National Cholesterol Month is over for another year and thanks to everyone who got involved with our 100 mile Great Cholesterol Challenge.  We hope to raise £10,000 from this activity alone.  The challenge is still open until the end of November and if you would like to register you can here.

There were plenty of other exciting things going on during October, from cholesterol testing to different fundraising events up and down the country.  It's too early to determine exactly what we have raised just yet so keep checking this page and we will post a final figure up here soon!

Our picture shows Team HEART UK  getting ready to do their own 100 mile Great Cholesterol Challenge!  As a team we raised over £2,000!
