World Heart Day

World Heart Day is coordinated annually by the World Heart Foundation.

This day focuses on creating healthy heart environments.

By ensuring that everyone has the chance to make healthy heart choices wherever they live, work and play, World Heart Day encourages us all to reduce our cardiovascular risk, and promotes a heart-healthy planet for those around us.

To support World Heart Day on your site, you could do the following:

  • Download materials and resources from the World Heart Day website;
  • Organise a healthy breakfast bar to encourage employees to eat well before they start work;
  • Contact local health and fitness professionals to see if they can run on-site sessions;
  • Start up a ‘we quit at work challenge’ to encourage employees to quit smoking as a team;
  • Organise a pedometer challenge to get employees walking more.

World Heart Day runs annually on 29th September, to find out more about this event click below.
