Welcome and thank you for visiting our blog. The British Heart Foundation Jersey Branch was established in 1972 to support the life saving research of the BHF. We have created this page to help Islanders keep up to date with local events, activities and ways in which you can support our local fight against heart disease.
Just one week to go before hundreds of adrenaline-seeking, fun-loving Islanders take to the sand dunes of St Ouen's Bay donning their finest sporting attitudes as they battle their way through the Sand Storm Adventure Course!
Sponsored by Nedbank Private Wealth, Sand Storm is Jersey’s definitive adventure race, open to everyone old enough and brave enough to have a go. Sand Storm competitors will need to overcome the terrain and beat the obstacles as they throw themselves over walls, crawl under barbwire, scramble up and fling themselves down sand dunes and plough through water obstacles to be the first over the line, and what's more... it's all for a great cause! Getting out and being active is a fantastic way of keeping a healthy heart and reducing the chance of developing cardiovascular disease - so needless to say we are delighted that BHF Jersey Branch is the chosen charity for this year's heart pumping event!!
Want to know what it's all about? Check out this video of last year's event!
