Pippa Middleton wants to help fight heart disease.
It has been announced that the 30-year-old brunette beauty is named as the new ambassador for the British Heart Foundation.
"I was shocked to learn that nearly three times more women die from coronary heart disease than breast cancer," Kate Middleton's younger sister said. "I'm passionate about raising awareness amongst women of this killer disease and I look forward to working with the BHF to highlight to women the risks of heart disease and importantly, how the can reduce them."
The news comes just a day before Pippa and her brother, James Middleton, participate in the Race Across America, a 3,000-mile journey from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md., starting on Saturday.
