Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland improves the quality of life for people in Scotland affected by chest, heart and stroke illness, through medical research, advice and information, and support in the community.
We offer a range of community services throughout Scotland, including support for families and other carers.
Scotland has one of the highest rates of heart disease in the world; heart disease represents almost 20% of all deaths per year in Scotland. Stroke is the greatest cause of severe disability in Scotland and kills 3 times as many women a year than breast cancer.
If these aren’t reasons enough to join our fundraisers and enjoy an experience of a lifetime whilst helping fight for Scotland’s health, then do it for the challenge, do it for the novelty, do it for the respect, do it for yourself.
