North Wales Chronicle, 26th February 2020
An avid cyclist, 30 year old Alex Jones was out on his bike when he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and passed away in March of last year. To mark the anniversary of his passing, 35 of his cycling friends have planned to do a fundraising charity ride with the aim of raising £5000 for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) in Alex’s memory. Alex’s mother, Audrey, said: “Alex was out cycling on a sunny afternoon in the Denbighshire hills that he loved when he suffered a cardiac arrest and died. He was just 20 minutes into his ride. Having experienced the devastation of losing our son in this way we want to do what we can to raise awareness and support CRY’s work to cut sudden young cardiac deaths. We have set up a CRY Memorial Fund for Alex and all proceeds from the day will go to the fund.”
The Alex Jones Memorial Charity Ride will take place on Saturday, 28th March.
