"We are an organisation devoted to educating individuals on cardiac health to save lies around the world"

About us

Heart4More Foundation was founded by Tobi Alabi in February 2014.

 

We are the first in the world, in our field to be recognized by the Premier League as a cardiac focused organization to provide Cardiac Heath Workshops to the Premier League, Professional Footballers Association, Professional Clubs and various Educational Institutions. In addition we raise awareness by running community heart screening days and donate defibrillators to schools and sports clubs.

 

Our Ambassadors include Hector Bellerin, Alex Oxlade-Chamblerlain, Danielle Carter, Alex Wynter and Aider O’Brien

The founders story

 

Tobi Alabi is a retired footballer, previously representing Millwall FC, Ljungskille SK and Nigeria at U16 level.

 

On 15th October 2013, at the age of 19, Tobi collapsed and suffered cardiac arrest during a non-league friendly match against Molesy FC and was rushed to the hospital. He was advised to stop playing professional football immediately, and had a heart monitor placed into his chest.

 

This unfortunate event motivated Tobi to start the Heart4More Foundation in February 2014. Tobi felt local communities and sports players lacked the information they needed to stay safe, and wanted to change this.

 

Tobi suffered another cardiac arrest in April 2014, where his older brother found him lying unconscious on the bathroom floor. Tobi was again rushed to hospital after a successful resuscitation. The heart monitor revealed that Tobi’s heart had stopped three times at three minutes a piece. Based on this information, doctors concluded that Tobi had a mild case of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and he had a pacemaker implanted into his chest.

 

This made Tobi become even more active in the Foundation. At first he started to work with local football clubs, local communities and spread the word by countless media interviews. He then managed to put together a small team of highly motivated people and used their resources to raise awareness.

 

Heart4More Foundation has continued to grow into a respected charity within communities and among Premier and Football League Clubs, and reaches more individuals each year.

Schools

Heart4More school workshops follow the same format as workshops  targeted for professional football clubs. We educate the staff as well as the students on signs and symptoms of arrhythmia and cardiac arrest, CPR and defibrillator use.

We focus on promoting heart health, healthy lifestyle and raise awareness of heart abnormalities. Our workshops complement health lesson plans and contain high quality cardiac and health information. Our aim is to create an entire generation of competent, confident lifesavers who, in the case of emergency can calmly perform CPR and use a defibrillator.

Defibrillators

The use of a defibrillator increases survival rates from 6% to 74% if used within the first 5 minutes. Despite this, many people don’t know what one is, or don’t know how to use one. This needed to change.

Here at the foundation, within our CPR workshops, we also train individuals in what AED’s are and how to use them. In addition to this, we aim to donate as many defibrillators as possible to ensure as many lives as possible are saved.

Screening

As these activities are expensive, we are seeking funding to allow us to continue providing an access to heart screenings for the public. Our aim is to raise £85,000 by December 2018 in order to fund our screening program and continue our fight to save lives.

Here you can see one of our community screening events at the Emirates Stadium, London.

Clubs

There were 74 reported deaths worldwide in football due to sudden cardiac death between 2006 and 2016. We believe it is crucial to teach footballers to react quickly and effectively in the case of an emergency.

We are the sole providers of cardiac health education for the Premier League and Professional Footballer’s Association. We work closely with football’s governing bodies to educate youth players of all 92 professional football clubs nationwide. Our workshops include educating players on signs and symptoms of arrhythmia and cardiac arrest, how to perform CPR, and familiarizing them with a defibrillator, teaching them how to use it.

Many players display symptoms of having heart conditions but are unable
to identify them due to lack of education. We hope to help to drastically reduce this number by 2027 through our educational workshops.
