Walk 2019

Join us and walk to beat SCAD!

Our annual walk will be held on Saturday 14 September at Coombe Country Park, Coventry

This is a great opportunity for Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) survivors, families and friends to meet, network and support each other, as well as to raise money to help Beat SCAD continue its work.

Dr David Adlam, who is leading the UK research, will be attending and will give a short talk about the research after the walk – don’t miss it!

Please help us raise funds for research by donating to our Walk Fundraising Page, buying merchandise, setting up your own fundraising page or asking your employer for match funding. For more ideas see the Raise money tab below.
