Walcountians and CRY

Who is CRY?

Since its formation in 1995, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY 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 specialist referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.

Fundraising plans

We would like to offer a heart screening to every member of WSC (players, coaches etc) who are aged between 14 and 35 years (this age range is imposed by CRY). There are 600+ members in WSC across all sports, the majority of whom would fall within this age range.

DONATE HERE (in progress). If you wish to donate to the Walcountians CRY initiative, please contact wsc.walcountians@gmail.com or pop into the clubhouse and make a donation at the bar.
