To celebrate the 10th birthday of the Big Blood Pressure Check, we are proud to launch the Big Blood Pressure Van!
The van has been made possible with the incredibly generous support of Ryman Healthcare, which has chosen us as its charity partner.
The van will travel around the country throughout late 2018 and 2019, testing blood pressures for free!
It's a project that could save lives, as high blood pressure is the leading cause of stroke.
Luckily, once detected, high blood pressure can be treated through lifestyle changes and medication.
You can watch a short video about the van here:
The van is on the road, so keep an eye on this page for when it's coming to your town. The van will be in the South Island on the following dates (with more to come as they are confirmed).
The van will be in the North Island later in the year and in 2019 - please check back to see when it's in your area.
