Dr Lucie Pearce, BHF Clinical Research Fellow at the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, has begun a campaign fundraising for the charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). At the core of the fundraising is sponsorship for the London Marathon, taking place on 2nd October, a daunting 26.2 miles.
In an aim to raise even further funds, Dr Pearce hosted a charity bake sale last week appealing to the sweet cravings of staff and students here at the HCI. Lola’s Cupcakes kindly donated cupcakes to sell along with more goodies provided by our own team. The event was a success and Dr Pearce was able to raise an impressive £221.75.
CRY is a charity which focuses on preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research, and supporting affected families. Further information on their valuable work can be found here.
Well done Dr Pearce and good luck at the marathon!
