In at the deep end with the ‘Bath Half’
University student Ella Brown is tackling her first ever half-marathon next year in aid of Tom’s Fund and CRY.
Ella and her friend Louise Kirk will be taking part in the ‘Bath Half’ – the Bath half-marathon – in March 2014.
Ella, studying Ancient History at the University of Bristol, is a daughter of CRY patron Ben Brown. She said she hoped running in the event would encourage young people to be screened.
“I’ve never run anywhere except for a bus before so this is a pretty big challenge! We’re really hoping we can do everyone proud and complete it, as well as raising money for CRY. It’s a great charity providing invaluable support as well as research into cardiac conditions.
“My siblings have both been screened, and it was an incredibly easy and friendly experience that can give you such peace of mind.”
