This year's Why Not Run event will take place on Sunday 12 May so please save the date!
The event will be supporting The Ben Daniels Memorial Fund in association with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and money raised from the event will provide a cardiac screening event in the local area, where all participants in this year's event will receive priority booking for this free screening.
The Ben Daniels Memorial Fund in association with CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)
Ben tragically died in 2011 from an undiagnosed heart condition whilst playing football aged just 15. Ben's fund raises money to hold screening sessions in the local area to screen as many children and young people as possible.
At least twelve young people die in the UK each week from undiagnosed heart problems, so in addition to raising funds for this fantastic charity, we are also hoping to raise awareness of the importance of having young people screened.
Funds raised from Why Not Run events go towards hosting a series of local screening sessions, with Why Not Run participants receiving priority bookings onto these screenings.
