Healthspan Heroes

Healthspan doesn't just want you to enjoy the best of health- we want to help you put that good health to good use in fundraising for others.

 

Healthspan Customer Heroes represents a charitable fund that is available to all our customers to enable them to access and take part in fundraising events that they may otherwise have not been able to enter.

Whether you’re putting off entering that 5k run, have always wanted to do a charity skydive or are planning an epic trans-Siberian bicycle ride- we’d like to hear from you and how we can help remove the barriers (however small) to getting you to the start line. 

Applications are open for the next round of awards and will close on the 31st September 2014. Tap here to find out how to apply for support from the Healthspan Heroes Scheme
