Proceeds will be donated to Charity
This year our main Charity is Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and the balance of funds will be donated to the RCLP Charity.
- Who is CRY (website) and what do they do?
Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions, known as Young Sudden Cardiac Death (YSCD).
CRY is a UK Charity set up in 1995 and since then has been working tirelessly to reduce the frequency of YSCD by promoting and developing a unique programme of heart screening for young people.
They also fund medical research into this often undiagnosed condition in young people and offer specialist referrals for those affected, as well as screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.
Once diagnosed, CRY supports young people who are identified with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD.
And in order to promote public knowledge about Cardiac Risk in the Young, CRY publishes and distributes general as well as specific medical information that is written by leading cardiologists.
We hope you agree that CRY Is a Charity that deserve our generous support.
As part of our support for CRY we will be funding and arranging a CRY Heart Screening Day to test local young people active in sports at the Parklangley Club in 2020. Watch out Twitter feed @rclangleyPark for more details.
- Who is the RCLP Charity and what does the Charity do?
