Heart disease is the UK's biggest killer - accounting for 39% of all deaths.Blog » Community Projects » 10K first run.jpg

This year, JCI UK is launching the Good Heart Project. In partnership with the British Heart Foundation - their chosen charity of the year, JCI UK will be promoting good physical health through adopting healthy eating lifestyles, reducing cholesterol intake and increasing exercise. This will also be our national contribution towards fulfilling the United Nations Sustainable development Goal SDG #3 in promoting good health and wellbeing.

In line with JCI UK's plan of action, we at JCI Southampton have chosen to support Wessex Heartbeat as our charity of the year. Wessex Heartbeat helps achieve the very best care for people with heart conditions treated in the Wessex Cardiac Centre and provides support to the babies, children, adults and their loved ones treated at the Wessex Cardiac Centre at Southampton General Hospital.

To accompany this project, Jaycees from all over the UK will be participating in a 10K run on Sunday 23 April 2017. South Chambers including Southampton will be running the ABP 10K race while North Chambers will be running the Bolton race.

Join us for a fantastic talk by Marcus Orlosvky, Change Agent, TEDx Conference Speaker, Workshop Leader, Thought Provoker, on Leadership vs. Management.

Marcus is passionate about creating better opportunities for young people and transforming aspirations and achievement, largely driven by challenges he has had to overcome in his own life. This led to him founding Bryanston Square, bringing together a team of dedicated individuals to assist in bidding for highly competitive public procurement school projects.

From addressing 300 Yr 11 students, 900 Googlers or 1,200 TEDxers, Marcus has an engaging and thought provoking style of delivery, which inspires audiences to grasp opportunities and take on the impossible.
