Barbara runs half marathon to raise funds for fight against heart disease

Royal ParksOn Sunday 7th October Barbara Keeley MP joined over 12,500 runners in London to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon.

Barbara was running to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, a charity that researches possible cures and works to improve the lives of people with heart disease.

Barbara completed the 13.1 mile run in two hours and thirty-six minutes.

Barbara said:

“Heart Disease causes high levels of illness and too many early deaths across Salford and in Worsley and Eccles South. Like many people, I have lost family members who died at too young an age due to heart disease.

“I ran this half marathon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation to help ensure that a cure can be found for a disease that can be so frightening for those who have it. I would like to thank those people and companies who sponsored me for their donations to this important cause.”
