With the continued support, the Kris Ledgard Memorial Fund will continue to raise awareness of cardiac health conditions in young adults and increase the frequency of screenings.

Tom competes regularly to a national standard in track and cross-country over the last ten years. Kris was one of his closest and dearest friends. Once an athlete Tom used to race in sessions and competitions, Kris turned into the person he could turn to for advice and help. To Tom, Kris was always available to give him a post-session massage, or help with stretching and gym work. The void that has been left will never be filled, and through the Kris Ledgard Memorial Fund and CRY we can ensure that other athletes and young people can be protected against unseen cardiac problems.
