Fareham Borough Council employees will be supporting the Mayor's charity ‘Wessex Heartbeat’ by taking part in the Great South Run on Sunday 28 October.
The Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Dennis Steadman said. “I am delighted, as Mayor of Fareham, to be supporting Wessex Heartbeat by helping to raise funds to support people of all ages with a heart condition. I’m really pleased and honoured that people have given up their time to train for and take part in the Great South Run in aid of the charity and I really hope lots of people sponsor them, and support them along the route."
Wessex Heartbeat is based at Southampton General Hospital, and their aim is to make sure that everyone affected by heart conditions receive the best possible support. Cardiovascular disease causes nearly 40% of all deaths each year in the UK, which means at some time, someone in our lives will be affected.
