Official Charities Of The Year

Run for our Official Charities of the Year 2019

We are proud to announce the British Heart Foundation and The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Charity are the official charities of the Richmond RUNFEST 2019 event. Please find out more about them below.  

British Heart Foundation

Heart transplants. Clot busting drugs. Pacemakers. Breakthroughs born from visionary medical research. Research you fund with your donations.

Heart and circulatory diseases kill 1 in 4 people in the UK. They cause heartbreak on every street. But if research can invent machines to restart hearts, fix arteries in newborn babies, build tiny devices to correct heartbeats, and give someone a heart they weren’t born with - imagine what’s next. 

We fund research into all heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors. Heart attacks, heart failure, stroke, vascular dementia, diabetes and many more. All connected, all under our microscope. Our research is the promise of future prevention, cures and treatments. The promise to protect the people we love. Our children. Our parents. Our brothers. Our sisters. Our grandparents. Our closest friends

You and the British Heart Foundation. Together, we will beat heartbreak forever.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Charity     

Our mission is to unlock the potential of plants and fungi, through the power of scientific discovery and research.

We are fighting for a world where plants and fungi are understood, valued and protected.

At the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, we harness the power of our science, and the rich diversity of our gardens and collections to unearth why plants and fungi matter to everyone.

The need has never been greater.

Join us and support our vital science work while running in our beautiful Gardens.
