“As President of HEART UK, I am delighted to be supporting National Cholesterol Month this October, which aims to raise awareness of the dangers of high cholesterol. Just think what a difference we can all make if we get involved and do something amazing to raise funds to help support HEART UK’s vital life-saving work. I wish them all the best with their campaign”.
Dame Judi Dench, DBE
“I am thrilled to be supporting HEART UK’s National Cholesterol Month and their good work in raising awareness of the dangers of high cholesterol, often referred to as the silent killer. We should all be aware of our cholesterol levels and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. I wish them all the best with this worthy campaign”.
Get involved with the Great Cholesterol Challenge – treat your heart and raise funds!
To celebrate National Cholesterol Month, why not get involved with our Great Cholesterol Challenge? This simply means ‘moving more and eating better’ and having fun doing one of our fantastic ‘virtual challenges!' The challenges are all designed to help improve heart health and raise funds to enable us to continue our vital life-saving work.
Being active has so many wonderful benefits. Firstly, it increases good cholesterol levels (HDL), reduces blood pressure, keeps your weight in check and helps reduce your overall risk of heart disease. Regular exercise also makes you feel good! Combine this with a healthy diet and you are half way to becoming a new healthier you! So whether it’s swimming, running, climbing, walking or rowing – please get involved with one of our fun 'virtual challenges' and help us reach our target of raising £50,000 this October.
“We had such an amazing time when we got involved with National Cholesterol Month! I can’t wait to do it all again! We did a virtual ‘London to Paris’ bike ride with loads of us getting involved. It was really good fun and special to think we raised £330 for such a great cause’.
