17 Year Old Student Fundraises for CRY Heart Screening

Monmouth School for Girls, 25th June 2019

Sixth Form Student, Elinor, has launched the ‘Hartbeat’ campaign to raise funds for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) after her cousin, Frank, was diagnosed with a heart condition at a CRY screening financed by a memorial fund. “Frank’s diagnosis, although devastating, has potentially saved his life,” Elinor said. She aims to raise £5,000 in order to hold another CRY screening in Monmouth for 100 young people. “CRY is a vital charity, especially to sporty youngsters,” said Elinor. “I would like to extend the Dean Mason Memorial Fund’s kindness and pay for an event in Monmouth next summer. I need to raise at least £5,000 to host one day’s screening, when 100 youngsters can get checked.” Read More
