Owen Burek is crowdfunding

raised of £10,000 target by 50 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to Establish a trust in memory of Prof. Roy Burek that will continue his life-saving research into head injury.

What is crowdfunding?

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.


Roy committed his life's work towards making horse riding safer and saving lives. He was on the frontline of lifesaving research into the science of head injury. This research led to Roy being appointed as an Honorary Professor at Cardiff University in 2017.

Cynthia Burek - Roy's sister and a Professor at the University of Chester - will be looking into establishing a trust to fund research on head injury, to continue her brother's legacy and their grandfather's mission of Charles Owen being 'For a Safer World'.
