Running for 1500 consecutive days for Cardiac Rehab

Running for 1500 consecutive days for Cardiac Rehab
"What started as keeping fit in 2019, running 100Km a month, continued into 2020," writes Adrian Cobb, a member of Alresford Golf Club, near Winchester. "That was until lockdown arrived, allowing only an hour for exercise each day. But then a week became 50 days of running, and 100 consecutive days, running up to 300km per month, then a calendar year, quickly followed by 500 days, then 1,000 days. It turned into a personal challenge, as I continue to run each day, still completing 250km per month, with 1,500 days in sight. I have been waiting for the right opportunity to raise money for a worthwhile cause, and I feel the time is right, with the Captain’s charity at Alresford Golf Club for 2024 being Cardiac Rehab, at Alton; and I believe you can make a difference. (I had a close friend die of a heart attack some years ago). Please consider a gift because this charity has no NHS funding and is dedicated to improving the heart health, fitness, and wellbeing of individuals with, or at risk of, developing heart disease. Services offered range from cardiac rehab to retaining/improving fitness, prevention of heart disease and cancer rehabilitation. In addition, for elderly people, the charity helps people to avoid falls with a programme to maintain strength, balance, and coordination so they can continue to live independently for as long as possible.

Your gift will get to work in the right way to add years to life and more importantly to add life to years- to lengthen the all-important health span."
