We are proud to report that Dr Lucie Pearce, BHF Clinical Research Fellow at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, has completed the Paris Marathon in a time of 5 hours and 27 minutes! Dr Pearce ran the marathon on behalf of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), an important charity focussed on preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening, and research, and supporting affected families.
With an injury making her unable to complete the London Marathon in October, Dr Pearce re-channelled her focus to Paris and was able to run a remarkable race. Through her efforts, Dr Pearce was able to raise £1500 for CRY to continue their valuable work.
