Charity / Wed 28th Jun 2023 at 09:31am
LAST weekend [Sunday June 25th] almost 800 people walked together in memory of loved ones and a shared acknowledgement of the 12 apparently “fit and healthy” young people (35 & under) who die every week in the UK from young, sudden, cardiac death (YSCD).
The CRY Heart of London Bridges Walk is now in its 17th year and is the pinnacle of the charity’s awareness raising calendar, helping to generate almost £1millon since its launch in 2007.
The family of Ashley Trigg were supported by a large team of family members and friends who travelled to Southwark Park on Sunday to join the annual charity walk.
The family, from Harlow first became involved with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) following the tragic and sudden death of Ashley in April 2016 from a previously undiagnosed heart condition.
Ashley was part of the Majorettes, many of whom joined her family on Sunday in the Walk.
She was just 25 years old when she died. Since her death, her family have raised over 25,000 for Charity.
Well Done Everyone whom joined the walk -Such a lovely tribute and thank you for highlighting the cause
