Knutsford man takes part in marathon to raise money for man whose life he saved
Adam and Matthew Kimpton-Smith, from Knutsford, are taking part in the Prudential Ride London 100 on August 4 to raise money for Prevent Breast Cancer.
Their Miles for Melanie challenge was inspired by Adam’s colleague, fellow anaesthetist Melanie Osbourne, who died of breast cancer last year.
Adam, Matthew and fellow Knutsford resident Dave Blakemore will be cycling through the capital and into the Surrey countryside with more than 30 of Adam’s friends and colleagues.
Adam is a consultant anaesthetist at Wythenshawe Hospital, and while driving out of Knutsford three years ago saw Matthew collapse off his bike. He saved Matthew’s life by performing CPR with Matthew’s friends at the side of the road.
He went to see if he could help, discovered Matthew had suffered a cardiac arrest and started CPR with Matthew’s cycling friends at the side of the road.
The event starts at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and finishes on The Mall. If you would like to sponsor Adam, Matthew or Dave visit virginmoneygiving.com/adamdobson2 –virginmoneygiving.com/davidblakemore –virginmoneygiving.com/matthewkimptonsmith
