Bruno’s parents to walk in his memory

Carlos and Julie Fernandes are walking Hadrian’s Wall in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

The grieving parents of Honiton teenager Bruno Fernandes, who died in his sleep earlier this year, are paying tribute to their son by walking Hadrian’s Wall.

The challenge aims to raise money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

Publicans Carlos and Julie Fernandes will be embarking on the 84 mile walk, from Carlisle to Newcastle, on June 5.

The walk will take around six or seven days and the couple desperately hope more people will support CRY to prevent tragic deaths, like Bruno’s.

Carlos said: “We were going to do it anyway but, because of what happened, we decide to it in Bruno’s memory and raise money and awareness about the condition, so more young people can be scanned and avoid more unnecessary deaths.

“Help CRY prevent these tragedies.”
