The awards recognise the incredible efforts people make to fight heart disease. Ask yourself who has impressed you with their drive and determination to make a difference.
They might be someone who’s campaigning for better health services, a brilliant fundraiser or a heart patient who’s inspiring others by overcoming daily challenges.
Heart disease continues to devastate the lives of millions of people. But in every community there are individuals striving to change that, and the heart hero awards exist to celebrate their work.
If someone you know deserves an award, please nominate them online at bhf.org.uk/heartheroes.
