    Story

    Sam Polledri Foundation Bike Ride - Previous Page Link

    This is our second Justgiving page for this event as our original one was shutdown. In our previous fundraising page we raised an incredible £7,540! We will link both funds and donate them to saving lives. To view the Previous page please click link above.

    Sam tragically passed away of a cardiac arrest in February 2022, aged only 24.

    Sam absolutely loved life. He was kind, loving, strong, always singing or dancing and so much more. He deserved to experience years and years of more life, to achieve all he had planned to do. He was a great partner to my daughter, who treated her with an enormous amount of love and respect. Sam will eternally be missed by so many family and friends, especially by his parents, brothers, grandmother and girlfriend.

    In honour and memory of Sam during September 2022 me and my good friend Giulio will be cycling 1,000 miles from Land's End, Penzance to John O' Groats, Scotland. We will complete this in 10 days.

    All money raised will be donated to the ‘Sam Polledri Foundation’ An organisation that aims to have lifesaving defibrillators installed in as many public places, to raise awareness on how and when to use the equipment.

    ‘In the UK, due to cardiac arrest 12 fit and healthy young people aged between 14-35 die every week…' That statistic should not be so high and it is growing. ‘If a defibrillator is used within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest survival rates jump from 6% to 74%’ There was no wall mounted/registered defibrillators near Sam, he wasn’t given the chance to survive.

    Please be part of the change to help prevent these tragedies from happening. Let's get these defibrillators out there and known.

    We will ensure you live on through saving other people's lives in your name. Hope we do you proud Sam.
