Wilo sales manager to run in the New York Marathon

Former heart-surgery patient Kevin Padmore, OEM sales manager for Wilo Intec (right), will be a Heart Runner in this year’s New York Marathon to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. He will don his official BHF Heart Runners vest, along with French colleague Vincent Fleurier, to run the course on 4 November. He is aiming to raise at least £2500 to help the charity in its fight against heart and circulatory disease, the UK’s biggest killer. Kevin says, ‘I decided to take part because in October 2005, whilst training for a half marathon, I was diagnosed with acute angina, which resulted in heart surgery to fit a stent into one of my main arteries, which was 90% blocked. My father also died of coronary heart disease aged just 43. ‘I have recently returned to running to keep fit, and, as a thank you to the staff at the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary, who possibly saved my life, I am running the New York Marathon in November.’ Heart disease causes four out of 10 deaths in the UK.
