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.

The founders story

Tobi Alabi is now a retired footballer. He previously represented Millwall FC, Ljungskille SK and U16 level in Nigeria.

Tobi joined Millwall FC in 2002, was enrolled in the clubs academy in 2010, made his first team debut whilst on tour in Ireland in 2011 and was awarded a professional contract in 2012. He signed for an undisclosed fee by Sweedish Superretan side, Ljungskille SK on a two-year contract but returned back to the UK shortly after.

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

This unfortunate event motivated Tobi to start Heart4More Foundation in February 2014 as he felt the communities need for more action, awareness and a sustainable charity.

Two months later, Tobi suffered another collapse in April 2014. His older brother found him lying unconscious on the bathroom floor. Tobi was rushed into the hospital after a successful resuscitation. The heart monitor has revealed that Tobi’s heat had stopped three times for three minutes each time. Based on this information, doctors concluded that Tobi had a mild case of HCM *hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – enlargement of the cardiac muscle) and he had a pacemaker implanted into his chest.

He became even more active in the Foundation and at first started to work with local football clubs, local communities and spread the word by countless media interviews. He managed to put together a small team of highly motivated people and used their resources to raise awareness. Heart4More Foundation grew into a respected charity among the Premier League Clubs and within communities continues to reach more individuals each year

Schools

Hert4More 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.

Screening

Watch a video of an example Heart4More community heart screenings.

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.

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, familiarizing them with a defibrillator and teaching them 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 in the upcoming ten years through our educational workshops.
