Run for aortic dissection research

Run the Royal Parks Half for aortic dissection

The Royal Parks Half Marathon is an exceptional event set in the heart of London, featuring a stunning 13.1-mile route through four of the capital’s historic Royal Parks – Hyde Park, Green Park, St. James’s Park, and Kensington Gardens. This picturesque half marathon boasts a scenic, traffic-free course, providing runners with a unique and memorable experience.

Team Aorta will be participating in the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise crucial funds for aortic dissection research, with all sponsorship proceeds going directly to our research grant fund. This funding is vital for supporting projects aimed at enhancing clinical care, saving lives, and improving the quality of life for individuals affected by aortic dissection.

As you cross the finish line, not only will you have accomplished your personal running goal, but you will also be contributing to our research objectives: to enhance the lives of those living with aortic dissection.

Help us to save lives by funding advances in aortic dissection patient care through research

I lost my cousin at 55 through this and I believe something could have been done to prevent her death.


My brother died of this, the hospital he was in THE DAY BEFORE HE DIED did not diagnose this or check for this.
