About

The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation has been set up to raise awareness of sudden cardiac death in the young and to provide funding towards heart screening, defibrillators and CPR/defibrillator training primarily for grass-roots sports teams. The charity was set up in memory of Daniel Wilkinson who died in 2016 aged 24, while playing the game he loved, from a previously undiagnosed heart condition called Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC). Other than feeling light headed on a few occasions in the month before he died, he had no symptoms. Dan played football from an early age and joined Hull City AFC when he was 10, earning a professional contract when he was aged 18. Loughborough University followed where he attained an Honours Degree in Accounting and Financial Management while playing non-league football. He was an athlete who enjoyed the gym and took his health and nutrition very seriously. He lived life to the full and had so much ahead of him. Tragedies can be prevented through cardiac screening. It is vital that young people who may be at risk are identified and treated.
