St Mirren Football Club is dedicating this weekend's match against Ross County to The British Heart Foundation, the largest independent funder of research into heart and circulatory diseases in Scotland and the UK. February is National Heart Month and during this time, awareness of a variety of heart conditions are bought to the fore.
With the public’s support and donations, British Heart Foundation will drive new medical discoveries to end the suffering these conditions cause. We are proud to play for the individuals and families affected.
Across the country, 700,000 people are living with heart and circulatory diseases. Heart diseases, stroke, vascular dementia cause grief and misery; but British Heart Foundation offer hope. They fund world-leading research into causes, prevention, treatment and cure. Advances from their research have saved and improved many lives, but there are many more people to save.
St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin said: "As professional athletes we know the importance of staying fit and having good heart health. We are delighted to show our support for The British Heart Foundation during National Heart Month."
