The long road from a broken heart
Published: 11 May 2017
Support for the Heart Foundation comes full circle as this courageous adventurer gives back to the organisation that helped save his life, by embarking on a global cycling adventure.
Cycling the world for heart health
Jeremy Scott was just four years old when he underwent life-saving open heart surgery to repair a huge hole in his aortic valve. His surgeon was Heart Foundation-funded cardiologist the late Sir Brian Barratt-Boyes. Since surviving this rocky start to life, Jeremy has demonstrated what it truly means to live life to the full.
Cycling the globe
Jeremy spent two years and seven months cycling 51,916kms through 29 countries in an adventure many of us only dream about. During his travels he raised desperately needed funds for the Heart Foundation and continues to do so today with the publication of his beautful book The Long Road from a Broken Heart. A percentage of the sale of each book is generously donated to the Heart Foundation.
The Long Road from a Broken Heart
This is a stunning book featuring hundreds of awe-inspiring images taken by Jeremy during his travels and recounts his tales of adventure.
With stories of the Iranian and Filipino Mafia that had Jeremy fearing for his life, it was the beautiful acts of kindness offered by strangers throughout the world that will forever warm his heart. While this beautiful story of self-discovery will leave you feeling genuinely inspired, Jeremy's stunning photographs from the road will render you speechless.
