Joanne Wilson, Managing Director of Fill the Gap Marketing Limited in Lincoln, will be running the London Marathon on the 22nd April to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
Joanne said: “I ran the London Marathon in 2015 for the British Heart Foundation in honour of my grandmother who we lost to heart disease 25 years ago.
“This year, 2017, my partner Stuart, in his early 40’s was diagnosed with heart failure. Not so long ago, this condition would have been terminal, however thanks to the work of the NHS and the British Heart Foundation and others like them, the treatment options are now phenomenal and with his consultant’s blessing.
“Only 12 months after the diagnosis, Stuart will be running the London Marathon too, his heart mended. Don’t take your heartbeats for granted.
“Please donate to this fantastic charity so that more lives can be saved and more support can be given. Fight for every heartbeat. Thank you.”
