The wonderful Angels are donning pedometers for a whole month from 6th August to the 5th September, aiming to walk at least 10 MILLION steps to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, a charity close to their own hearts.
For over fifty years, the British Heart Foundation has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly cardiovascular disease still kills more than one in four people in the UK; that’s nearly 160,000 deaths each year – an average of 435 people each day or one death every three minutes.
It’s only thanks to support from the public that the British Heart Foundation can conduct new research and discover new cures, so every penny the Angels raise by walking, running and climbing to raise awareness will fund this critical care.
Donations can be made by visiting the Angels’ Just Giving page here but sharing is also caring so please follow their Twitter page to keep up to date with their photos and running totals and share #Angel10Msteps to help this incredible cause.
