Story

On February 17th 2018 we hosted a cardiac screening event at Swansea University's Sports Village.

Working alongside local charity Welsh Hearts, we screened over 100 young people for life threatening cardiac abnormalities. Research shows that early diagnosis can save lives.

In around 80% of cases of Young Sudden Cardiac Death, there will have been no signs, symptoms or warnings – underlining the vital role of screening.

The screening will benefited Swansea University Students, Staff & Sports Village users - Individuals aged 18-35 years were eligible to be screened.

My partner John & I will be completing 12 in 12 - at least one race, fitness event or challenge for every month of the year. The aim of our challenge is to raise funds and awareness for Cardiac screening and the work of Welsh Hearts, as well as contributing towards the incredible research carried out by the British Heart Foundation. Proceeds will be split between the two charities.

We kicked things off with the scenic, yet gruelling, Buff 10K trail race on January 14th. Our next events will be the Bath Skyline 10K in February and then on to Newport Half Marathon, The Darth Mannion Beach & Swamp Run Challenge & The Brecon Carreg Cardiff Bay 10K in March... Yep 3 events in one month.

Later in the year we'll also be taking part in Tough Mudder, Cardiff Half and the Royal Welsh Trail Festival, updates on these to follow.

For more information on events or fundraising contact L.J.Brake@Swansea.ac.uk or visit Welshhearts.org for more information about Cardiac screening.

Thank you for your support!

    3 races of 12(ish) done! We had the minor setback of Newport Half being cancelled twice because of the snow, but luckily we jam-packed March with events and are still on course with our challenge. Last Saturday we took on the mighty Darth Mannion Beach & Swamp run, which was a pretty brutal way to complete my first Half Marathon! This weekend we have the Brecon Carreg Cardiff Bay 10K, fingers crossed for a warmer weekend for it! Thanks for the support. Happy running! L x
