Description

Oliver King attended King David Primary school and started at King David High School in September 2010. He was a keen sportsman who excelled in football, swimming, athletics and many other sports. Oliver passed away suddenly in March 2011, aged 12, from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS). This condition usually affects people between the ages of 12 and 35. The Government recognises that 12 young people each week die from SADS but it is believed that the true figure is around 16-19 people each week and could be higher as the condition is often misdiagnosed. Oliver's parents have set up the Oliver King Foundation to help raise awareness of the condition as it can be controlled and monitored if detected.
The money raised by the Foundation will be used to raise awareness in communities. Raising awareness is of vital importance as young people with the condition do not usually show symptoms. Some of the money will be used to buy defibrillators to be placed in schools, local sports centres, etc. and to assist in providing staff with the relevant training. The money will also be used to have peoples‘ hearts screened to check that they are healthy.
The cost of an initial ECG is £35 per person. The Foundation will help people to pay this cost. There is a mobile unit which the Foundation will be bringing to Liverpool to have young people tested. The first screening hosted by the Foundation will be at the King David Campus in 2012.
