Runners dig deep for @CRY_UK in Andrew’s mile #Ealing

Andrew Carter Memorial Mile 2016

Ready for the off.

The second annual Andrew Carter Memorial Mile raised more than £800 for Tom and Claire’s fund and CRY on Saturday, September 3.

Andrew was taking part in the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon when he collapsed shortly before the end after a cardiac arrest. He passed away the following Wednesday.

His family, who are keen to promote CRY’s work, said: “Andrew loved his life in Ealing which had become his home over the last five years. He was a fit and healthy young man who typified all that is great in life. He loved all sports, especially running, swimming, and football.

Ealing Half Marathon organisers Sandra Courtney and Kelvin Walker, who organised the race, said: “We were delighted that over 70 people took part, with local runners joining family and friends in completing the mile.  The winner was Jonathan Horan in a time of 05:20 with the leading woman being Sophie Foxall in 06:47.

“Well done and huge thanks to everyone that came along and helped to raise funds for such a great cause.”

Paul Clabburn said: “We’re very grateful to Andrew’s family and all the runners for making such a wonderful contribution to the Fund in support of CRY. The next free CRY heart screenings taking place in Ealing for young people aged 14-35 will be held in November.”
