Supporting the CRY Centre for Sports Cardiology

Greg Whyte and his intrepid team from the Centre for Sports Cardiology are about to start the Race across America 2008 bike race to raise money for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

This is a cause close to my heart, if you will pardon the pun. Greg and his team screened me a few years back to check for any structural defects in my heart. Although I have the cardiac equivalent of a misfire at least the mechanics of it are all sound ! While screening can't prevent every case of sudden death in young sportsman it can and does pick up many structural problems and improves prevention.

You too can sponsor the team on the Just Giving web site.
