North East of England

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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Cardioproof is a non-profit organisation based in the North East of England. Cardioproof aims to significantly improve survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest. When cardiac arrest occurs out of hospital every second counts. The sooner the heart can be restarted the better the chance of survival. Public access defibrillators can make a huge difference and help to save lives. Cardioproof also support a cardiac arrest response unit in the North East.
This year I am running the Great North Run to help raise awareness of Cardioproof, the good work it is doing to help save lives and also to raise funds to help Cardioproof get more public access defibrillators in our communities.
Not only am I running the Great North Run, but I am running it carrying a defibrillator on my back to further promote the cause.
Strenuous exercise may put additional strain on the heart muscle and trigger complications from underlying heart conditions, therefore it is also important that defibrillators are accessible near sporting events and sports centres.
I plan to run the Great North Run alongside an amazing man who's life was saved by a public access defibrillator when he had a cardiac arrest whilst running a little over a year ago. People like him would not be here today without the resources I am raising money to help provide.
Please support this cause and myself if you can, and donation of any amount will be put to good use.

    13.8 miles of my runs were carrying the defibrillator in the backpack this week. The backpack has now gone to have the Cardioproof logo put on it. I still will be training with the defibrillator on my back, just in a normal back pack. 4 weeks to go.

    It's getting more real. Number is here 😀. I'm setting off in the green wave. My favourite colour, so all good. Last night I ran 6.5 miles with the backpack - I've now managed 5k and 10k race distances with it, and I do seem to be adapting not too badly to it. Imagine if all races had access to a defibrillator....
