More than £400 has been raised for Tom’s Fund and CRY by participants in the Andrew Carter Memorial Mile on Saturday, September 2.
Almost 50 runners took part in the event in Lammas Park, Ealing, which was hosted by Ealing Half Marathon CIC.
“We had a lovely morning in the sun” said Sandra Courtney, for the organisers. “Thank you to all the runners and supporters who attended. We raised the money in just an hour and we hope there’s more to be donated online.”
The event is held each year in memory of Andrew, an Ealing resident who passed away after the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon.
Paul Clabburn said: “Once again we are extremely grateful to all who took part and to Andrew’s parents for donating via Tom’s Fund, thereby supporting local heart screening for young people.”
The next screenings in Ealing will be held in November.

There’s still time to sign-up for this year’s Andrew Carter Memorial Mile, which takes place in Lammas Park, Ealing, on Saturday, September 2.
The run is held in tribute to Andrew, who collapsed from a cardiac arrest shortly before the end of the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon. He passed away the following Wednesday.
Every year since then, a memorial run has been organised in aid of Tom’s Fund and CRY as part of the Mile Series organised by the event organisers of the Ealing Half Marathon.
They say: “This special Mile event is held free of charge to anyone wanting to run, jog or walk our Mile Series course.” They add: “All we ask is that all runners make a donation to the collection tin on the day or donate online here to the Tom Clabburn Fund.”
You can sign up for the run here.

Ealing Eagles Running Club have raised nearly £1,800 for The Tom Clabburn Memorial Fund and CRY.
Club chairman Thom Martini said: “The Eagles have supported CRY for many years through their involvement in the Ealing Half Marathon and the Andrew Carter Memorial Mile. It seemed a natural progression to make Tom’s Fund our nominated charity for 2016/17 as we believe it is important that young people have the opportunity to access cardiac screening locally. “
Thom continued: “We held a series of running and social events to raise the money and we are delighted that it will be used to support such vital work. Being runners, we tend to think that we are all fit and healthy but tragically, as we’ve seen, that is not necessarily the case.”
Many of the club’s runners take part in the Ealing Half Marathon, which has again named CRY as an associated charity partner for the 2017 event in September. Members also turn out in large numbers to support the annual Andrew Carter Memorial Mile. Andrew died of an undiagnosed heart condition while taking part in the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon and his parents allow proceeds from the race to be paid into Tom’s Fund.
Tom’s dad, Paul, said: “We are honoured to have been nominated as the Ealing Eagles charity for the year. Both individually and collectively, they have been extremely supportive to us over the years and we can only thank them for yet again putting such a tremendous effort into raising money for the Fund. They are an incredibly generous group of people.”
