CRY Screening Day 2024
2 March @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
CRY SCREENING DATE 2nd March 2024
Every week in the UK at least 12 assumingly fit and healthy young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions… CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) is a national charity saving young lives and supporting those affected. The charity aims to reduce the frequency of young, sudden cardiac death by working with cardiologists and family doctors to establish good practice and appropriate screening facilities to help protect and promote the cardiac health in our young. Harry Faulkner and Alex Hubbard were both Raiders players who lost their lives early to an undiagnosed heart condition. High profile cases in the professional game such as Tom Lockyer and Christian Eriksen have brought it to national attention as well. At the last Raiders screening, a number of individuals were identified needing additional investigations. This is why Raiders are so passionate about supporting and promoting CRY.
On Saturday 2nd March 2024 we will be hosting our next Screening Day. This is an opportunity for Raiders members, and their siblings, to have a non-invasive, safe and simple ECG test carried out by trained medical professionals. If further tests are needed then full advice and information will be given on the day.
PLEASE NOTE: The screening day is only available for children aged 14 or over as for children younger than this, their hearts are not yet fully developed enough for the equipment to work accurately
The event, run in conjunction with Cardiac Risk in the Young, costs approximately £6,000 to host which covers the costs of the medical team and their equipment for the day. We kindly ask everyone taking part to make a voluntary donation of £60 to help cover our costs.
