Research has shown that being physically inactive can increase your risk of heart disease and so we’re calling on everyone in the North East to put their best foot forward and sign up to Just Walk.

Just Walk invites family, friends and colleagues to organise a walk in a location, time and distance of their choice.

It’s a fantastic way of getting more active whilst raising money in the fight against heart disease.

Every stride taken and every pound raised will help fund even more vital research to support the seven million people living with heart and circulatory disease in the UK.

Sign up to Just Walk today and get a free kit full of everything you need to show heart disease where to go by visiting www.bhf.org.uk/JustWalk
