About the group
We team anv (acta non verba) believe actions are bigger than words, and nothing comes bigger than the highest mountains in UK to conquer. So the team of three (Gavin, Jamie and George) from Northampton will be beating the 24hrs challenge and hopefully raise some money for the British Heart Foundation in the process.
Fundraising for British Heart Foundation
BHF are the nation's heart charity. Our vision is a world where people don't die prematurely from heart disease.
They aim to achieve this through pioneering research, vital prevention activity and ensuring quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease.
Their vision couldn’t be much more ambitious - a world where people no longer die prematurely from heart disease.
When you have a vision that big in mind, it helps to set some milestones along the way. That’s why they have set a number of objectives to guide our day-to-day work.
Their mission is to play a leading role in the fight against disease of the heart and circulation, so that it is no longer a major cause of disability and premature death.
In their strategy report, Beating heart disease together (published in 2007), we stated that:
Within a generation, we aim to:
•reduce cardiovascular disease in the UK to one of the lowest levels in Europe.
Within a decade, we aim to:
•halve the number of people under 75 who die from cardiovascular disease
•make sure at least two thirds of people under 75 survive a heart attack
•reduce heart-related deaths in all UK local authority areas to the current level in South East England or below
•reverse the increase in childhood obesity.
