Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
On February 18th 2017 we will be hosting a cardiac screening event at Swansea University's Sports Village.
Working alongside local charity Welsh Hearts, we'll be screening 100-120 young people for life threatening cardiac abnormalities. Research shows that early diagnosis can save lives.
The screening will benefit Swansea University Students, Staff & Sports Village users - Individuals aged 18-35 years will be eligible to be screened.
Through events such as Disco Spin, extreme fitness challenges & a charity dodgeball tournament we have raised almost £800!
The Sports Village have set a fundraising target of £1000, with the remaining costs being funded by Swansea University.
To continue the fundraising we have organised further events including a charity Zumba Fit session; and various Swansea Uni sports club are getting involved too.
For more information on events or fundraising contact L.J.Brake@Swansea.ac.uk or visit Welshhearts.org for more information about Cardiac screening.
Thank you for your support!
