On 22 March 2015 a team of Spire runners/walkers will be taking part in the Hastings Half Marathon, a gruelling 13 mile course around Hastings.
We are raising money for the Bristish Heart Foundation, where 81 pence in every pound raised goes directly towards their life saving research.
If you would like to donate or sponsor our team, you can visit our JustGiving page or text donate by texting SPSX55 and your amount to 70070.
The list below shows what your money goes towards:
- £10 will pay for all the test tubes, glassware, pipette tips and gloves a busy team of scientists will use in a day.
- £30 pays for a Heartstart schools training pack which provides teachers with a specialised Emergency Life Support (ELS) skills package to teach children what to do in a life-threatening emergency.
- £140 helps fund a cardiac nurse working on the Heart Helpline for a day. The nurses provide vital information and support to heart patients, carers and families, helping them better manage and understand their conditions.
