Weʼve raised £1,690 to help fund a defibrillator for Compound Strength & Conditioning
- Funded on Wednesday, 25th September 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Last year myself and my brother Max, who is my business partner and one of the other co-owners of Compound Strength and Conditioning, unexpectedly lost our Dad due to a sudden heart attack. He had the heart attack in the middle of the night at home and although the paramedics were incredible, by the time they arrived with a defibrillator it was too late and he had been unconscious for too long to be saved. He put up an incredible fight in a coma for almost 24 hours but his brain had been starved of oxygen for too long and his organs failed.
On our gyms third birthday on June 8th this year we will be raising money to buy a defibrillator for our gym as we fully believe in the importance of these devices and the speed at which they need to be accessed. That weekend would also have been our dad’s 66th birthday (June 9th).
We have also been very fortunate to be supported by some amazing brands and local businesses for the raffle we will be holding on Saturday 8th. All money raised through this will also go towards this cause.
