CRY fundraiser in memory of David Longhurst

By Dan Simmonite | 23rd November 2020

Every week, 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions and David Longhurst's cousins have been raising money for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) by completing a 12-mile walk on Saturday.

The relatives have raised over £1,700 so far and you can still donate here.

David Longhurst tragically died whilst playing football for York City against Lincoln City in 1990 from a heart condition called cardiomyopathy. It is the same condition that affected Fabrice Muamba.

Their fundraiser reads: "We are doing this walk to raise money so more young people can be tested to prevent the same tragedy happening to another family.

"Cry do amazing work in screening young people and we want to help them continue this."

Fabrice Muamba visited Bootham Crescent last week to film a special initiative with UK Coaching on the disease.
