A month to go before the @CRY_UK London Bridges Walk 2015

CRY Bridges 2014

Team Tom 2014

We’d be thrilled if you could join Team Tom VIII for the 9th annual Cardiac Risk in the Young London Bridges walk, taking place on Sunday, June 28.

You can register for the event here .

Don’t worry if you can’t fund-raise, the event is as much about raising awareness as cash. After eight years of walking, CRY understand that it’s not easy to keep trying to obtain sponsorship.

So enjoy a stroll through the centre of town to mark CRY’s 20th anniversary year and wear the CRY T-shirt.

Claire believed it was an important way to promote the message that the loss of 12 young lives a week was unacceptable. She was determined never to miss a Bridges Walk. It would be lovely if you could help us keep that commitment alive.

A turnout to be proud of in support of @CRY_UK

Before the off : the unofficial photo of Team Tom VII that didn’t quite fit everyone in!

 

Tom would have been amazed – and more than a little humbled – by the large numbers joining Team Tom VII for CRY’s eighth London Bridges Walk today. We certainly were.

Nearly 50 people joined us to walk in memory of Tom and in support of CRY. To get such a turnout seven years after we first walked is inspiring.

It was particularly moving to hear some of the memories of Tom recounted by his friends.

If you took any pictures and would like to share them with us, please do. We’d be happy to publish them along with those below, many of which were taken by David Bentley.

Overall, more than 950 people had registered for the walk by the beginning of the week and it looks as though for the second year in a row the final total will be more than a thousand.

A special thanks, therefore, to Rebecca Zouvani and the team at CRY who plan a walk that has become bigger with each successive year. They cope with a myriad of complex and changing challenges while managing to ensure that the event stays sharply focussed on Tom and all those like him.

Perhaps one day we won’t be writing about the 12 young people that we lose every week to undiagnosed heart conditions. Perhaps then we’ll simply walk in memory of those we have lost. But until that day, to all of you who have just given up your Sunday to walk or who have supported us or Tom’s Fund over the past year, thank you. CRY needs you.

Join Cardiac Risk in the Young on Sunday morning for its eighth annual London Bridges Walk.

It’s not too late to register – you can do so on the day. For details click here.

You also don’t need to raise sponsorship. Great if you can but it’s as much about raising awareness.

So come along on Sunday to remember Tom and all those like him and to get CRY’s message across – #12aweek is 12 too many.
