About

The Heart4More Foundation, founded in February 2014 by me, Tobi Alabi, when my football career was cut short when I suffered a cardiac arrest on the field of play, is a non-profit organisation that works with football’s governing bodies, professional clubs, educational institutions and communities to raise awareness of cardiac health. Our motto, “To Save Lives & Enhance Futures”, reiterates our stance on using sport to empower the general community for collective social development and wellbeing.

The Gala Dinner, on 1st May 2016 at the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair, aims to bring the community together to celebrate the lifesaving work of the Heart4More Foundation. This year, we are also raising funds for the purchase of equipment that will contribute towards the successful implementation of our National Screening Programme. We need to raise £112,000 to make these purchases and therefore be able to provide screening opportunities to the general community, saving the lives of those who are unknowingly at risk of sudden cardiac death.

By joining us at the dinner, you yourself will be “Saving Lives & Enhancing Futures”.

Thank you,

Tobi Alabi
