My story

[p]I will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise money for the Somerville Foundation, the UK’s only charity dedicated to supporting congenital heart patients.[/p][p]There are over 250,000 adults who were born with a heart condition living in the UK. The Somerville Foundation provides support for young people and adults born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) & (ACHD). The charity exists to create a world where they receive excellent medical care, and lead happy, healthy lives. [/p][p]The Somerville Foundation aims to:[/p][p]-Provide all congenital heart patients with accurate, timely information and advice. Allowing them to grasp opportunities, take informed decisions and make positive lifestyle choices[/p][p]-Combat isolation and poverty for congenital heart patients and their families[/p][p]-Fight discrimination through campaigns, education, and the promotion of congenital heart patients’ rights[/p][p]-Enable congenital heart patients to share and learn from experiences and support each other.[/p][p]Here are just some of the ways the Foundation is helping to change lives for the better: [/p][p]-In partnership with the University of Suffolk, established the UK’s first dedicated Congenital Heart Research Centre.[/p][p]-Launched a Freephone patient helpline to provide practical advice, a listening ear, and emotional reassurance at times of stress.[/p][p]-Organise events for young people and adults. Providing CHD patients with the opportunity to meet and gain support from each other.[/p][p]-Contribute to adult CHD nurse training days and taken part in various study days and conferences for medical and health professionals, including the bi-annual EuroHeart conferences.[/p][p]Organising various social, publicity and fundraising events such as marathon runs. [/p][p]By donating you help the CHD community grow! You also help with the vision to create a society where those born with a heart condition receive the support and medical care they need to lead longer, happier, and healthier lives.[/p][p]Your donation no matter the size or frequency helps the Foundation to continue vital work for adults and young people born with CHD. The Somerville Foundation relies on your donations to do all the things that we do and therefore any contributions will be hugely appreciated. [/p][p]Thank you :) [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
