CRY Update 78 reports on all news, events and fundraising from January to April 2019.
In March we announced two new additions to our group of CRY Ambassadors: England and GB international hockey player James Gall and artist Katy Jade Dobson. You can read about James and Katy and why they decided to support CRY on page 5.
On March 24 we had 69 runners take part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon, which was a fantastic increase in representation for CRY after having 15 runners last year. Turn to page 16 for a write-up of the event.
Our last major fundraising event of this period was the Virgin Money London Marathon. 108 runners gathered to represent CRY this year, including CRY Patron Bill Neely who ran his 10th consecutive race for us in memory of Katrina Brown. You can see a full write-up and photos of the event on page 20.
We also had some important research highlights, including the funding of a new research project by The Charles Wolfson Charitable Trust (featured on page 15) and the 2019 EuroPrevent conference (featured on page 6), where many of CRY’s doctors presented their work.
For her column in this issue of the Update, featured on page 12, CRY Founder Alison Cox wrote about the story of Professor Mary Sheppard and her research at CRY’s Centre for Cardiac Pathology.
