Mr Motivator to lead a 1,000 strong cheer squad for the British Heart Foundation

British TV superstar, Mr Motivator, is calling on people to dust off their dance moves, ready their rallying cries and join him for an epic cheerleading party this year, as he becomes the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Chief Cheerleader for the 2022 TCS London Marathon. 

The fitness guru is calling on over 1,000 volunteers to join his epic cheer squad on Sunday 2nd October. He will be leading the cheer squad for the BHF, which is the charity of the year for the 2022 TCS London Marathon. Mr Motivator and the BHF cheer squad will help spur on runners at the 10 cheer points across the iconic 26.2-mile route.  

Derrick Errol Evans MBE, better known as Mr Motivator, rose to fame in the 1990s when he started performing fitness routines on our screens. He is the heartbeat of the BHF’s Support Squad for the 2022 TCS London Marathon, which has been assembled to give over 1,000 BHF runners the support and encouragement they need to cross the finish line on Marathon Day. 

Mr Motivator to lead a 1,000 strong cheer squad for the British Heart FoundationMr Motivator said: “I’m thrilled to be the Chief Cheerleader for Team BHF at the 2022 TCS London Marathon. 

“Fitness and good health are a gift which we must celebrate. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the London Marathon and I want to assemble the very best team to help motivate and inspire all the incredible people who are taking on the 2022 TCS London Marathon.  

“We’ll be cheering and dancing to fire up all the incredible runners who pass the BHF’s 10 cheer points on the day.  And we’ll be cheering extra loud for our 1,000 British Heat Foundation runners who are hoping to raise £3 million for regenerative medicine to help heal hearts all over the UK. 

“As part of the BHF cheer team, volunteers will be at the very heart of the event day experience, helping to encourage runners and creating an unforgettable atmosphere for all those taking part. 

“So practice your rallying cries and get ready to shake those hips for a special party supporting Team BHF this year!”   

Lisa Young, Volunteering Programme Lead at the British Heart Foundation, said:

“We’re delighted to be the Charity of the Year for the 2022 TCS London Marathon and we’re so grateful to Mr Motivator for bringing his joy and energy to the role of Chief Cheerleader for Team BHF.  

“Signing up to volunteer for the BHF at the London Marathon is such a great opportunity to be part of a momentous day and support the incredible runners taking part to raise vital funds.”  

As Charity of the Year for the 2022 TCS London Marathon, the BHF wants to raise £3 million for pioneering research into regenerative medicine that could one day find a cure for heart failure. 

In its severest form, heart failure has a survival rate that is worse than many cancers and can be so debilitating that everyday tasks, like climbing a flight of stairs, become a struggle.   

With nearly a million people currently living with heart failure in the UK alone, Mr Motivator’s rallying call for support has never been more important. 

The money raised by runners will help the BHF fund ground-breaking research projects taking place at multiple universities across the UK. The charity says this cutting-edge research into regenerative medicine could lead to currently unimaginable treatments and cures for people with heart failure within a generation.
