Young Sudden Cardiac Death

The mother of a teenager from South Yorkshire who died in her sleep from an undiagnosed heart condition is concerned about the future of smaller charities that are struggling to fundraise in the pandemic. Alex Reid  from Thorpe Salvin in Rotherham died out of the blue aged 16. Her mother Heather is running 624 miles to raise money for young people to have their heart screened by charity Cardiac Risk in the Young. That’s one mile for every young person who loses their life each year due to an undiagnosed heart condition.
