Get active, have fun and raise money to help hearts in your local community!
SUBWAY® stores and Heart Research UK are hosting a series of SUBWAY Helping Hearts™ Family 5K events throughout the UK in the summer of 2014.
Help hearts near you
We’re delighted that your family wants to support Heart Research UK. The money you raise through sponsorship will help us continue to support people in your area. We hope you will raise as much money as possible by asking family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you or you may even want to organise your own fundraising event on behalf of Heart Research UK.
Whatever you raise will help someone near you through a healthy heart project.
A family day out
The fun runs are open to the whole family. You can choose to run, walk or even push your buggy around the course - everyone is welcome.
Children Under 12 go free
The events are free for children under 12 and £5.99 for those 12 years and over if you register before the event. On the day registration will be £7.99 for those 12 years and over. All sponsorship money raised from the event will go towards the Heart Research UK and SUBWAY® Healthy Heart Grant scheme which provides financial support to local community groups.

Heart Research UK
Heart Research UK has been helping hearts since 1967 when heart surgeon, Mr David Watson MBE, realised that patients were dying unnecessarily because of the lack of research into heart disease, especially surgical techniques. More personally, he was tired of telling heart patients that there was little he could do to help them and wanted to do more.
Since then, we've been helping people to live healthier, happier and longer lives through our work in funding ground-breaking medical research as well as helping communities to improve their lifestyles through our Healthy Heart grants.
The partnership between the charity and SUBWAY® stores is now in its sixth year and has raised over £500,000 to support communities across the UK through the Heart Research UK and SUBWAY® Healthy Heart Grants Scheme. With the new SUBWAY Helping Hearts™ Family 5K events we aim to reach the £600,000 mark by the end of 2014.
