Welsh Hearts June 2020
The Million Steps Challenge

About Us

Welsh Hearts are the leading heart charity in Wales for placing defibrillators in communities and delivering CPR and defibrillator training in Wales. We are regarded as the heart charity at the centre of saving lives in Wales.

Cardiovascular disease accounts for a third of all deaths in Wales. In Wales the death rate is higher than in the majority of countries in Western Europe.

Why we are taking part

Every second counts when you’re having a cardiac arrest. There are approximately 8000 sudden cardiac arrests outside hospital in Wales every year, and only a 3% survival rate.

A defibrillator is able to restart the heart during a cardiac arrest, and can save lives.

When used, the survival rate can increase to 50%, but a speedy response is crucial. This is the reason we have launched our Every second counts appeal in Cardiff.

The Million Steps Challenge:

Your Life, Your Challenge, Your Way™

Walking is great for our physical and mental health. But we tell ourselves we can’t find the time, we’re tired, we’ll start tomorrow.

But, big things can happen from very small beginnings. Walk, jog, run or even dance your way to a million steps. It all adds up to an awesome 500 miles!

Challenge yourself, compete with friends, and even raise money for a good cause. No more travelling to events, overnight stays, worries about training, expensive entry costs or high fundraising targets.

Sign up with Google Fit or Apple Health, sync your own devices OR use our full package* pedometer and app.

Everyone participant receives an introduction to mindfulness and strength and conditioning.

* Full package includes Bluetooth pedometer and specially designed app.
