Ricki Savage - a Sad Loss to his Family , Friends and our Club

As some of you may already know, Thanet Roadrunners club member, Ricki Savage died on Wednesday 30th October aged only 27.  Ricki had taken part in the Dublin Marathon but unfortunately suffered a heart attack after passing the finish line.  Medics from the St Johns Ambulance resuscitated him and was taken immediately to  St Vincent’s Hospital in the south of Dublin.   Ricky died two days later with his family beside him.
This has come as a major shock to all Thanet Roadrunner AC members as Ricki was an extremely loved person in the club and was one of our top athletes.
Mark Perkins, Thanet Roadrunners AC Club Chairman said, 'Ricki was a great guy, a friend and co runner who will be sadly missed by everyone within the club'
We have been informed by Ricki's family that the funeral will be held at Margate crematorium on Friday 15th November at 4pm. After the funeral there will be a gathering at Westgate pavilion. All are welcome to attend to celebrate Ricki’s life.
A condolence card  will be sent to the family.  A donation will be made to the British Heart Foundation which was the charity which Ricki was running for in the Dublin Marathon.  Further details of what the club will be doing to commemorate Ricki's life are still being discussed and will announced at a future date.
If you want to make a donation to Ricki's 'Just Giving' Sponsorship page  for the British Heart Foundation, please click on this link:
