As one of the only detoxes that could affect pretty much everyone in the UK (and beyond), the act of giving up chocolate seems punishing for many but the British Heart Foundation has combined charity with the health benefits of such an act with its DECHOX initiative.
Dechox is our nationwide challenge to give up chocolate throughout March. Anything with cocoa in it is off limits for 31 days – from the sprinkles on your cappuccino to that 3pm chocolate bar.
By stepping up and getting your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you to give up your favourite treats for a month, you’ll be raising money to fund our vital research.
We’ve partnered with JustGiving – a fundraising platform that makes receiving and paying sponsorship really easy – to help you generate donations that will save lives and make medical breakthroughs.
