NFDC CEO, Howard Button took part in Santa Run and raised £3,175 for the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)
NFDC CEO, Howard Button took part in the Santa Run on 18 December 2016 in memory of Dale Tennent-Butler. Dale was an 18 year-old who died in hospital after sudden cardiac death while playing in a Powerleague football game in December 2009.
Howard has raised £3,175 towards Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), which supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by young sudden cardiac death (YSCD).
Howard says: “Despite the challenge, completing Santa Run was such an achievement for me and knowing that what I raised will be going to such a great cause, makes it all worthwhile.”
CRY is a charity that promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public.
