An Ordinary Joe – An Extraordinary Legacy
Sadly, every week 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart problems, one of these unfortunate people being Joe Humphries, a 14 year old boy who suddenly collapsed whilst out jogging. After his deeply saddening death, his parents decided to set up a trust in his name which aims to:
• Promote research into, and awareness of, sudden unexpected death in young people.
• Promote education and training for young people and those who live and work with young people, into how to react to unexpected life threatening situations.
• Inspire young people to fulfil their potential and develop their talents
Richard Hillier and members of the Lexus Leicester After Sales Team took part in a bike ride around Rutland Water to raise money for the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust and to help to fulfill the goals outlined above by the trust. They managed to raise an amazing £400 and cycled a total of 624 miles as group! As tiring as the ride may have been, the team highlighted how proud and privileged they felt to be able to take part in an event to help such a worthy cause.- Return to listings
