2019 sees Little Hearts Matter celebrate 25 years of supporting families on every step of the half a heart journey.

We want you to help us celebrate in style by taking a place in two of the UK’s leading challenge events – the London to Brighton cycle and the Great North Run.

We have 25 places (one for every year of LHM of course!) in the London to Brighton cycle and 15 places in the Great North Run, so we’re looking to you, our super supporters, to form an amazing army of participants on both 8th September (Great North Run) and 15th September (London to Brighton) to take on the challenge and raise funds to help LHM continue to help children with half a heart.

To express your interest in taking on either of these events and taking one of the 25 places, please click below to find out more.

Great North Run


Sunday 8th September 2019



Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just starting out, the Great North Run is a fantastic challenge to set yourself knowing that every single step you take will make a difference for children with half a working heart.

Starting in Newcastle, you’ll run through Gateshead (watch out for the Red Arrows flying overhead!), and then past thousands of supporters as you enter South Shields before having a beautiful view of the sea as you undertake your final charge to the finish line.
