Run for @CRY_UK in #Ealing’s Lammas Park this weekend

Andrew Carter Memorial Mile 2016

Some of the 2016 runners ready for the off.

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.

Take to the streets to support the #EalingHalf and @CRY_UK #Ealing

Help to prevent 12-a-week.

 

This coming Sunday, thousands of runners will take part in the annual Ealing Half Marathon – and @CRY_UK and Tom and Claire’s Fund will benefit as an associated charity.

While it’s now too late to book a place to run, you can still get out on the pavements to cheer on the runners.

The event follows hard on the heels of the Andrew Carter Memorial Mile, organised by Ealing Half Marathon organisers Kelvin Walker and Sandra Courtney. That race raised around £1,000 for Tom and Claire’s Fund and we are very grateful to Kelvin, Sandra and the Carter family for their support.

To host each free CRY screening day for 100 people, the Fund has to raise £3,500. The practical outcome of the memorial mile is that it pays for the screening of about 30 young people aged 14-35. So, to all of you who took part, that’s what you’ve achieved.  Thank you.

Our next free heart screenings will be held in Ealing on November 6. Details on how to book will appear on this site in early October. You can sign up to email alerts if you want to be updated.

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.”

Details on how to book will appear on this site nearer the time. You can subscribe to this blog by email if you want to be alerted to when booking opens.

More than 110 runners took part in The Andrew Carter Memorial Mile in Lammas Park, Ealing, on Saturday, September 5 – and raised more than £1,000 for Tom and Claire’s Fund and CRY.

Andrew took part in the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon, collapsing shortly before the end following a cardiac arrest. He passed away the following Wednesday.

Andrew’s parents, Colin and Joyce, both attended the memorial mile. After thanking all those who had organised and supported the event, Colin told runners at the start of the race: “We would like to endorse our whole hearted support for CRY. We strongly believe in both research into sudden death syndrome amongst young people and that the screening of people taking part in races is a positive move.”

He added: “We believe that if the donations in his memory help to save one young life, it would be a fitting tribute to Andrew.”

The race was organised by Ealing Half Marathon organisors Sandra Courtney and Kelvin Walker who said: “What a fantastic turn out. Over 110 runners and lots of cheering spectators and our amazing volunteers. It’s by far our largest charity mile to date.

“Thanks to everyone who came along and your amazing generosity and a special thanks to Colin and Joyce for being there with us today along with Andrew’s friends and AIB colleagues.”

Paul Clabburn said: “We are extremely grateful to Colin and Joyce for donating the money raised to the Fund. It represents a major contribution towards our next free CRY screenings in Ealing in November – full details of how to book will appear on this site nearer the time.”
