Team story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting our page. <br /><br />Rishka, Halina and Alusha are raising money for the John Magowan Memorial fund. Rishka's husband, John Magowan (31.05.1979 - 31.05.2009) died on his 30th Birthday from an undiagnosed heart condition. Every week 12 apparently fit and healthy young people die in the UK from undiagnosed heart conditions.<br /><br />CRY is a charity that works with cardiologists and family doctors to promote and protect the cardiac health of our young by establishing good practice and screening facilities devoted to significantly reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death throughout the UK. They also provide support to bereaved families.<br /><br />Through events, walks and calendar sales, fitter friends managing iron man triathlons, and the generosity of friends and family, we have so far raised &pound;8,000 for John's Memorial Fund with CRY - and our goal is to make it to &pound;10,000 in 2011.<br /><br />We will be swimming (or "dipping") at 12 different beaches around Orkney every month of 2011. Dipping means we have to get our shoulders under the water and swim a few strokes, at least, whatever the temperature! These are the beaches we will be dipping at:<br /><br />January - Skaill, February - Birsay, March - Marwick, April - Evie, May - Inganess, June - Scapa, July - Cornisquoy, August - Dingieshowe, September - Sands of Wright, October - Waulkmill, November - Swanbister, December - Warbeth. See our photo gallery for pictures.<br /><br />Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p> <p>THANK YOU!!!</p>
