British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland (BHF NI) is calling on the people of North Antrim to get in the Christmas spirit and join the fight against heart disease by signing up for its Chase the Pud fun run around Dalriada School on Saturday 12 December.

The annual festive fundraiser is the perfect way to get friends and family together for either a 3K run, jog or walk around the school’s playing fields whilst raising money for the BHF NI’s life saving research.

Around 225,000 people are living with heart and circulatory disease in Northern Ireland and each year approximately 323 people die in the Causeway Coast and Glens area from cardiovascular disease. Every pound raised from this year’s Chase the Pud will help fund new research and vital treatments in the fight for every heartbeat.

Chase the Pud is suitable for all ages and the route is accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs and can be finished at the participant’s own pace.

Tickets for Chase the Pud Ballymoney are available now and are £15 for adults, which includes a Santa suit and £5 for children under 14. Children are encouraged to dress up for the event as their favourite Christmas character.

To find out more and to buy tickets, please visit www.bhf.org.uk/chasethepud or contact Gary Wilson on 07714 069129.

BHF NI is the biggest funder of heart research in the UK, in NI alone they are currently investing more than £3.1million on research.
