Cobham Rugby

Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) is a National Charity that raises awareness of potentially life threatening abnormalities of the heart in young people. They also undertake screening events.

On Saturday the 2nd September 2017, a team of 6 from CRY attended Cobham RFC and carried out a screening event that had been arranged for Cobham members. In total 93 members were screened.

The day ran smoothly and professionally, with Seniors arriving first, prior to their away game, followed by other club members from youth and women's rugby age groups 14- 35, along with some sporty siblings. This was all made possible by Debbie and Paul Cragg, whose son Matt was a Cobham player for many years and who unfortunately passed away in 2014. They wanted to use some of the Charity funds they and others have raised over the past few years for a good cause. Half of the money raised has been used for research, which CRY aIso engages in. I would like to thank them both on behalf of Cobham for allowing the screening event  to happen.
