During #HeartMonth this February, we are encouraging our supporters to help raise awareness and vital funds for CRY. Below are different ways to get involved, through challenges, social media and fundraising ideas.
This Heart Month we are pleased to announce the return of our ‘Why do I support CRY?’ campaign.
We are asking our supporters to share their reasons for supporting CRY and express what the charity means to them. Each response will then be featured on our social media platforms.
To get involved, film a short video or write a small paragraph explaining why you support CRY. You can submit your entry through direct message of on our social media or email us at email@example.com

Along with our plan to raise awareness this year, we are also looking for supporters to join #TeamCRY by signing up for a fundraising event in 2024.

Join CRY’s poster campaign to help raise awareness in your local communitiy, sports clubs, social clubs, schools or even community notice boards by participating in our poster campaign. This is a great way to raise awareness of CRY and help spread our vital message!
Contacting your MP to let them know about your experience is a really powerful way of raising awareness. We are grateful to all CRY supporters who email their MP or arrange to see them at their surgery, to talk about the issue of young sudden cardiac death and cardiac conditions in young people.
Sharing your stories about why you are supporting CRY helps to explain the devastating impact that young sudden cardiac deaths have on the family, friends and community.
Hearing from young people who have been diagnosed with a cardiac condition, or who have attended a CRY screening, is also important.
It is vital that MPs hear directly from their constituents, as well as from CRY.
CRY is urging all MPs to sign a pledge to support a National Strategy for the Prevention of Young Sudden Cardiac Death to help save young lives.
The UK needs a national strategy to ensure the guidelines and policies to prevent young sudden cardiac death are consistent. The first stage of a national strategy should be to correctly acknowledge the incidence and impact of these deaths.
