What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

On the 7th February 2013 Harry Faulkner, a super-fit 18-year-old squash player from Hertfordshire, tragically died from a sudden cardiac arrest whilst competing in a tournament. Unknown to everyone, Harry had an undiagnosed heart condition that kills 12 young people in the UK each and every week. This condition is broadly known as Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS).

Since Harry’s devastating death, his family and friends have committed themselves to raising money and awareness, in order to make diagnosis and treatment more accessible, and to prevent further fatalities. This silent killer takes more than just a young life; it changes the lives of families forever.

This documentary explores Harry’s story and the questions surrounding it. Why was there such a lack of public awareness? Does current SDS research offer any solutions? Is ECG screening really so vitally important? We know that the tools now exist to manage the condition; death is not inevitable. This film shows help is now very much at hand for those who seek it.

Our mission is to raise awareness of Sudden Death Syndrome and help reduce fatalities across the UK. Your kind donations will go towards the costs of our documentary and help fund Harry's charity so they can keep screening young people.
