Gideon Baws Memorial Fund

On October 11th 2008 we were robbed of Shynola director, brilliant
friend, and damn-good-egg, Gideon Baws.

Gid's sudden death was due to a form of Cardiomyopathy, triggered by
a viral infection. Chances are you've never heard of it. However in the
UK alone it is estimated that 12 "apparently fit and healthy" young
people under 35 die from undiagnosed heart problems EVERY WEEK.
This needn't be so.

A Gideon Baws Memorial Fund has been established at CRY (Cardiac
Risk in the Young). CRY works to raise awareness of Sudden Death
Syndrome (SDS) and campaigns for proactive screening of young
people. It also offers help and support to those who have suffered a loss.

On October 11th 2009 "Team GB" will run The Royal Parks Half
Marathon in Hyde Park, London. We are raising money for the
Memorial Fund.

Please, if you can, sponsor us and help prevent these unnecessary and
unfair deaths.

Team GB are:

Nick Goldsmith (Hammer & Tongs)
Richard Kenworthy (Shynola) &
Barney Newman (Pixipixel)

(don't just sit there and make out that you'll 'do it later')

Thank you,
Team GB
