Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page!

On October 14th 2018, I’ll be running in the Great Eastern Run (13.1 miles), supporting Gemma’s Hearts in providing 24hr defibrillator stations thoughout North West Cambridgeshire.

Here are some facts:

CARDIAC ARREST

It strikes without warning taking the lives of 250 people a day in the UK

It kills more people than lung or breast cancer

It can happen to anyone, even young athletes

270 children die in the UK every year after suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school

Approximately 80% of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur at Home; 20% will occur in public places

Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die

If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, their chance of survival increases from 6% to 74%

For every minute that goes by where a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest does not receive treatment, their chance of survival decreases by 10%

The emergency services average response time to a cardiac event related incident in an urban area is 11 minutes!

You can help to provide these life saving defibrillators by donating any amount you can, while I do the hard work!
