1000 miles Bike Ride for Cardiac Risk in the Young

1000 miles Bike Ride for Cardiac Risk in the Young

It was great to have met Mike Bonsor the other day to support him on his 1004 miles bike ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats in aid for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

About 12 young people die weekly from undiagnosed heart conditions in the UK.

Mike and his family have experienced the pain of loosing a close friend that died from heart failure last year at the early age of 17, which makes his venture very personal.

With the mission to save “one young life through screening or other means” and “spare ones family that pain” of young sudden cardiac deaths (YSCD), Mike will leave this Sunday (18th June) for a 14 days cross-country bicycle ride to raise awareness and funds to support Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

Since the mid 90’s the not-for profit foundation Cardiac Risk in the Young supports  young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public. CRY funds fast track referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.

The whole team wishes him all the best on his journey up to Scotland and donate £ 500 to this very personal cause of him.
