Bognor Regis Observer, 19th May 2020
David Green was just 19 years old when he passed away in his sleep due an undiagnosed heart condition called Brugada Syndrome. His mother, Gabbie Broadhurst describes him as, “…an extremely active young man who had been involved in competitive sports from the age of eight. His great loves were hockey and football which he played for local teams throughout his life. He was a big spirited young man who would light up a room with his presence and would love to laugh and joke.”
Since he passed away, David’s friends and family have raised money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) in his memory. Since 2011, his loved ones have been running the Bognor 10K as Team David to fundraise for CRY. This year it was cancelled due to the outbreak of the corona virus pandemic. However, Team David was determined to find a way to carry on.
“We decided as a Team we wouldn’t let this stop us from running in David’s memory to raise money and awareness for Cardiac Risk in the Young,” said Gabbie. “Team David ran the Bognor 10k from every runners hometown from Bognor to Chichester, Petersfield, Portsmouth, Southampton, London and Ireland.”
