One of our longest serving corporate partners is Subway, whose stores stores raise money for us through collection box donations at their till points. The money raised funds for Heart Research UK and Subway Healthy Hearts Grants, which are awarded to community projects across the country to improve the heart health of the nation.
Throughout the year we also have some wonderful Subway staff who go above and beyond by setting up their own fundraising events or challenges to help us take on heart disease.
The lovely Kareema Musa, Subway store manager at Barnsley Peel Retail Park, held a fundraising event on Saturday 26th September. Despite heavy rain, Kareemaa, with support from DW Fitness Barnsley, raised £250.
Kareema sadly lost her husband a few years ago due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), a problem with the heart muscle that affects its ability to pump. She is passionate about good heart health and we are so grateful that she is so supportive of our work.
If you or your company would like to organize a fundraising day for Heart Research UK, please contact Isabel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
