Japhet Tanganga & Adam Thompson Join JE3 Foundation for CPR Training

By Media

On Wednesday 14th July, the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation visited Riverley Primary School in Leyton to deliver CPR training and discuss Justin’s Law, a primary aim of the JE3 Foundation.

Year 5 pupils watched on as Charlie Edinburgh shared the story of his father’s passing due to cardiac arrest at age 49, before delving into CPR training in partnership with Heartwize. Joining the pupils in learning CPR were Japhet Tanganga and Adam Thompson of Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient.

Speaking after the session, Japhet said: “Today was a really informative lesson and it was great to be a part of it with Riverley Primary School. The JE3 Foundation do incredible work and it is vital we continue to support them in their campaign for legislative change. After what happened to my former teammate Christian Eriksen this summer at Euro 2020, educating people on how to administer CPR has never been so important.”

The visit is a prelude to the second annual JE3 Cup, in which Leyton Orient will host Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday 17th August as part of their pre-season programme. £2 from every ticket purchased will be donated to the JE3 Foundation in Justin’s memory.

JE3 Statement from Charlie Edinburgh

By Media

A message from JE3 Foundation CEO, Charlie Edinburgh

As a family, nothing brought us back to the moment we lost Dad faster than the frightening scenes that took place during Saturday’s Denmark v Finland Euro 2020 match.

In the days since, the spotlight has grown on JE3’s efforts to scale CPR training, raise awareness of cardiac arrest, and increase access to defibrillators through legislative change here in the UK. While we are immensely grateful for the increased engagement and support, I must first and foremost express, on behalf of everyone at JE3 Foundation, how sincerely relieved we are that Christian Eriksen is in a stable condition and is, based on reports, improving day-by-day. To Christian’s family, please know that you have a support system in us.

Much like those of you consuming the match from around the globe, and those in Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Saturday, I was hit by a wave of emotions: utter disbelief, empathy for Christian’s family, and sheer dread for an outcome of cardiac arrest that my family is all too familiar with. Noticeably absent in this whirlwind of emotions? Confusion. I was more confident than not that we were witnessing a cardiac arrest.

Just four days prior, we marked the two-year anniversary of Dad’s passing. In those two years, I have learned more about cardiac arrest than in all my years prior, and the measures that each of us can take to save lives in those perilous moments. There is no better case study than the collective action of the Danish squad, match referee, and medics which proved decisive in Christian’s survival.

I join each of you who continues to send well wishes for Christian and monitor his progress. While the issue of cardiac arrest is at the forefront of public consciousness, I hope that you will join me and the JE3 Foundation in taking action to save lives.

Charlie Edinburgh
CEO, Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation
