FUNDRAISERS will be going to great heights in a few weeks to raise money for heart research.

British Heart Foundation’s Take the Stairs Challenge will see hundreds of people running up the 22-storey Arts Tower at The University of Sheffield on February 25.

Former football ref Uriah Rennie is among those who will be taking part in the challenge.

Uriah said: “This kind of sport grabs the imagination and the Arts Tower really has the wow factor.”

Consultant heart specialist and lecturer Dr Timothy Chico, who research is funded by the BHF, is also taking part. He said: “Treating patients is rewarding but without research, treatment wouldn’t be possible. The BHF is therefore funding lifesaving and important research.”
