Weʼre raising £7,500 to raise enough funds to host a cardiac screening event. Cardiac screening can help reduce sudden cardiac deaths by up to 89% in young people.

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.

Stourport Swifts Juniors FC are a chartered standard club who have a wide range of teams ranging from Mini kickers aged 4-7 right up to U16's. We are passionate about helping our young players and the wider community.
There has been a lot of media coverage about young people that have suffered a sudden cardiac death as a result of an undiagosed cardiac condition. Cardiac Risk in the Young (www.c-r-y.org.uk) are an organisation who offer screening to young people between the ages of 14 and 35.
Our aim is to raise sufficient funds to enable us to host a screening event to screen our eligible players plus other young athletes in the community. However the cost of running such an event is between £5000 (weekday event) - £7500 (weekend event) and we need help raising monies to help us achieve our goals. We would love to be able to hold this as a annual event so that all players can have the opportunity to be screened once they become eligible.
Please give generously. Thank you.
