TEB Writer Running Hackney Half Marathon For Great Cause

A few months ago, my father passed away after suffering from a stroke which was caused by his Atrial Fibrillation.

He was a healthy sixty-six year old, and had been diagnosed with the condition only two weeks before he suffered his first and only stroke.

I am raising money for the Atrial Fibrillation Association by running in the Hackney Half Marathon this coming Sunday, in an effort to help raise awareness and support others who suffer from the condition.

Atrial Fibrillation Association (AFA) is a UK registered charity which focuses on raising awareness of atrial fibrillation (AF) by providing information and support materials for patients and medical professionals involved in detecting, diagnosing and managing atrial fibrillation.

AF Association works closely with medical professionals, Department of Health, government, NHS Trusts, strategic health authorities, patients, carers, patient support group members and allied groups.

My father, Martin Gill, got me my first season ticket at Palace, back in the 2004/05 season, which really skyrocketed my love for football and Crystal Palace Football Club. Whilst he was not initially a football nut, he also came out from this season with a passion for the Eagles.

Any donations from fellow Palace and football fans in general would be massively appreciated – just head over to my Just Giving page. Thank you!
