Team Sophie, Emma and Ed run London Marathon 2019’s story
Sophie, Emma and Ed are taking part in London Marathon 2019 for Circulation Foundation. We would really appreciate any donations to support this amazing charity and the work they do.
It is run entirely by volunteers and relies solely on donations to fund its vital research and awareness programmes.
The Circulation Foundation is a charity to raise funds to support research into the prevention and treatment of vascular disease but also to support patients and their families by providing information and advice. Sophie and Emma work as Vascular Scientists in London. Every day they care for and diagnose patients with all forms of vascular disease.
Vascular Disease is as common as cancer and heart disease and accounts for 40% of deaths in the UK. Every part of the body to which blood flows can be affected by vascular disease, which is why we’re committed to saving lives and limbs. Vascular disease is caused by inflammation and weakness of the veins and arteries - and by the build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels. It is the most common forerunner to coronary heart disease and heart attack and causes stroke by affecting the arteries in your neck. It also affects the arteries in your legs, which causes pain when walking, ulceration and amputation
Thank you once again for supporting us and helping to stamp out vascular disease.
“Keeping the nation’s blood flowing”
