Leamington BrakesSponsored Walk/Run/Cycle in aid of CRY
Duncan Phillips was a fit 39 year old who loved playing football each week with his friends and colleagues from JaguarLandrover. In April 2013, Dunc collapsed on the pitch and died a short time later, leaving his wife, Beth, and two young sons, Sam and Tom, who are now 8 and 6. The boys are avid footballers and play weekly for Leamington Brakes in the U9s and U8s Colts teams.
Dunc had a hereditary heart condition that would have been picked up by a simple, non-invasive test, called an ECG. As a result, Beth and Leamington Brakes are keen to raise funds for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) so that they can hold a free heart screening day to test the hearts of 100 young people aged 14-35.
The Leamington Brakes footballers and Dunc’s family and friends need to raise £3500 to hold a CRY heart screening day. They plan to walk, run or cycle around Draycote Water on Saturday 25th March and appreciate any sponsorship or donation that you can give to help them meet their target.
