LABS and the British Heart Foundation are doing Valentine’s a little differently this year. The workspace specialists and charity have partnered to launch ‘Beating Hearts’, a two-week programme of events dedicated to all-things heart health. Kicking off on Valentine’s Day, the initiative hopes to spread the word about the importance of having a healthy heart, as well as the BHF’s invaluable ongoing research aiding the 7 million plus people living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK.
Focusing on four key themes; rest, race, nourish and know, events span a 5k run hosted by Olympic Athlete, Aimee Fulle, a healthy brunch and ‘hearty’ discussion with health and fitness influencer Chessie King, a guided meditation session with Headspace, gut health talks – including a specially curated kombucha cocktail – and more.
Dotan Weiner, COO of LABS said: ‘We are thrilled to partner with the British Heart Foundation on Beating Hearts. Not only is the BHF a charity we admire for all the ground-breaking research they fund and awareness they raise, but as their head office is a local neighbour to us in Camden they’re a part of our wider community. The events programme has been designed to support the BHF’s vision for healthy hearts and longer lives, providing dynamic experiences to our members and beyond. All money raised through ticket sales will be matched by LABS and the total donated to the BHF so they can continue their great work.’
Director of fundraising at the British Heart Foundation, Amanda Bringans, said: ‘We’re incredibly excited to be teaming up with LABS to get the capital talking about the importance of maintaining good heart health. This series of educational workshops will offer Londoners some practical methods for staying fit and well, while also raising vital funds to support our lifesaving research into heart and circulatory diseases.’
